Power Bites

There are a couple snacks my crew cant get enough of, these are one of them! I can’t help it, I laugh a little when my 3 yr old shrieks excitedly “Mom, you made Power Bites?!?!” Dude, you’re three! I didn’t know what a power bite was till my late 20’s! But you’re not going to hear any complaining from me! I’ll make them as often as they’ll eat them!

Quinoa Oat Bake

Baked oats are a breakfast favourite! We are always switching up the ingredients and flavours, giving us something new to enjoy every time! One morning we had some left over quinoa in our fridge so decided to toss it in, cause why not! Turned out perfect, love the added protein and gave the bake a great new texture. Hope you enjoy!
