Chocolate Oat Balls

December 12, 2018

Be any age group, can anyone not enjoy snacks..? I am completely snack person and love munchies between meals. Normally I prefer fruits as snacks but when such bite size beauties are available.....fruits can stay in fridge for tomorrow.  

Store bought can have added sugars and other preservatives, so if we have time, its always better to make something at home. One of those is the below recipe! Can make during meal prep and enjoy whole week!

Do you know, Cacao and Dark Chocolate have more powerful antioxidants than many other foods.
