I’m constantly on the look out for quick, easy, healthy snacks. Life with a toddler and baby with 2 businesses to run means I’m constantly on the go running from the kids to a Pilates class to cooking dinner or to a clinic. So with some baking time on my hands the toddler and I experimented with oats, fruit, peanut butter and seeds to make an easy to eat, healthy, nutritious snack. These are wheat free, dairy free and gluten free if you use gluten free oats.
This was a lot of fun for the toddler, she did later get her hands stuck in and loved squidging it all. Perfect for textures, messy play and all round fun for her. I’ve found these great for eating between Pilates classes or for grabbing as a snack between meals when I’m feeding the baby.
Perfect for a post-exercise snack due to the protein content and great for mums on the run!
