Crumbly Energy Power Munchkins
You know the feeling when you go to the supermarket, and you really want a healthy snack but every time you pull off a box from the grocery-store shelf, you look at the ingredients on the snack box, and they all include sugar and/or sodium?
That's how I feel. From Costco to Walmart, that is what I've found to be the case. And I really dislike that. I love snacks. Sometimes I NEED snacks but I don't want to eat something that will not get my body any nutrients or worse, promote chronic illness.
One store I have found healthier granola bar options at has been at Sprouts. However, even those granola bars don't taste so great. I would much rather pull out the healthy apple or banana then have to eat one of the "healthier" granola bar options I find at Sprouts.
I'm not going to lie, their trail mix is pretty great and can be healthy. But I'm not talking about the trail mix option with M+M's, that's obviously not the best healthy option to go for.
But what do you do when the only option you have is trail mix? You get bored of eating it.
I literally cannot find a variety of healthy options (in stores) for my kiddos and I to snack on!!
It's ridiculous and just too bad.
I mean, we can always go for the fruit, the trail mix. Or the plain rice cakes, but sometimes we get bored and want something a little better. A little more homemade. Sometimes we need something a little different that contains no sugar, satisfying flavor and we have the privilege of knowing exactly what is inside the recipe.
This need for snacks and this craving for flavor inspired me to create the crumbly power muffins.
This one-of-a-kind snack is filled with flax, contains no sugar and can be loaded with protein if you're a nut-kind-of-person. It's simple to make and will get you the snack that we all yearn for-a feel-great, energy producing, simple, healthy, satisfying kind of snack.
