‘Tis the Season for Pumpkin Spice Everything.
I had to whip up a quick snack for my daughter’s Girl Scout Troop meeting. I was looking for a protein rich healthy snack with a touch of sweetness for the girls.
I chose this snack because it gives you quick energy and sustains you for a longer period of time with the addition of the peanut butter and nuts. Perfect for on the go athletes and on the go kids. I hope the girls like it – I know I do!
