Food Storage Friday: Nutella No-Bake Energy Bars

by heather
Awhile ago my friend was over and I handed her one of my trusty energy bars. She loved them, but suggested that I try making them with Nutella. Brilliant idea, Mandy my dear.

They don't travel very well, so they're not meant for races or really long runs. But for a quick dose of fiber, protein and carbs after Read more [...]

Quick After School Snack

by heather
Here's something we've been eating since jr high and I don't remember exactly where it came from. It's not low cal, but that doesn't mean that it's not nutritious. Plus, it's quick and easy. I remember eating it often after school and the protein in the peanut butter in a few of these plus a glass of milk would help hold me over until dinner. I still like to snack on these and my kids love them too, especially if I let them make faces with their toppings. I prefer them crammed with as many toppings Read more [...]
