So it's Columbus Day weekend and we all know what that means for families....you're either headed into an insanely busy sports tournament weekend (Soccer here!), or you are headed on a road trip. Either way, your kids will need portable snacks to get them through the weekend (and let's face it, us grown ups will too!). These GF Energy bites are easy to make and super portable. The perfect little healthy treat between games or to satisfy those car ride munchies!
Another awesome GF Mama shared this recipe with me (from www.glutenfreeonashoestring.com) and I was SUPER excited to make it for this weekend. With whole ingredients, protein and no refined sugar - except for the chocolate chips, which you can leave out of course, but I wouldn't ;). The original recipe calls for peanut butter, but since my son has a nut allergy, I subbed in Sunbutter and it worked out great. For the oats I used I highly recommend toasting the dry ingredients as directed as it really enhances the flavor.
