coco oat energy balls

Homemade is always better than prepackaged. 

My girls LOVED these. 





I'm the mom who jumps for joy when my kids love the food I make or prep for them. It's tough feeding these little humans. The first time I made these it was a total flop though. I made them like my husband and I were going to eat them (HUGE). 

I tried again... but rolled them into nice little bite sizes for them and they are a hit!

Here's the trick to sending these off to school just right. Freeze the entire batch in a glass container and then toss them in a stasher bag in the morning! They will stay cool until they get to eat them.  

If you don't want to use stasher bags because they're a little more expensive and kids always lose things then THESE are also great too (not silicone but still work).

I just love these so much because it's all real food, filling and easy. Just throw everything into a food processor and roll into bite size balls. 

so simple mamas!

Make one big batch once a week and have zero worries for what to "grab" when on the go.
