Thumbs up FAST, EASY, and DELICIOUS snack for young children...

Some days my son doesn't seem to eat anything we offer him but he loves his nut balls . Maybe this is already super popular in the world of vegans but in my house hold I invented the "recipe"! Haha.

1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
1/4 cup of pecans
1/3 cup of raisins
1 tsp of cinnamon

Blend it, roll it into little balls, and enjoy! Add more raisins if the balls fall apart too easily.

.
.
.

BONUS: You can replace the raisins with date or prunes and use any kind of nut or seed in your cupboard!

I can't get enough of these kinds of snacks. There's even a company, Larabar, that makes pre-made "candy" bars that contain only various combinations of fruits, nuts, spices, and occasionally cocao.

Aussie bites are also a great!

1 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flax meal
2 T chia seeds
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350.
In a food processor , combine the oats, quinoa, coconut, sunflower seeds, flax meal and chia seeds.
Then add the maple syrup and continue to blend.
Lastly, add the apricots and raisins and blend some more.
Grease or line mini muffin pans .
Spoon a little mixture into each cup. Press down the mixture well with your fingers.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool before removing from the muffin pans.
These should last a couple weeks in the fridge and much longer in the freezer.
