With a toddler, a growing baby belly, a blog and countless other life things going on, healthy protein packed snacks are key. One of my spring time favs are these Cranberry Coconut Protein Balls.
Lately time has been flying by. I mean we are one week away from April already!? What the heck?! Where did March go? Not complaining though… spring is here spring is here. Warmth and sunshine are coming soon!!!! AAAAHHHHHHHH 🙌 🙌 🙌
Ok sorry for that bit of craziness… just had to get it out.
With an incredibly active toddler that is now into climbing things. All things. Like chairs, tables, boxes, cabinets, baskets, basically anything that could technically be climbed. Add on a growing baby belly, a food blog, another trip in a week and spring projects, this mama NEEDS to stay fueled with a nutritious, healthy, delicious snack that I can eat on the go.
Yep. Protein Balls.
Right now I am crushing on these Cranberry Coconut Protein Balls. Perfect little bite sized snacks that are loaded with protein from almonds and pecans, fiber and natural sugar from the dates and cranberries, and omega-3s from chia seeds.
Lately I’ve loved whipping up a quick batch on Sundays while my toddler is asleep! This batch lasts all week! Only problem is my toddler is obsessed with these too… so either I have to share OR make a double batch.
I now make a double batch 👊
