They are full of healthy ingredients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fat. There is no room for added sugar or unwanted chemicals!
Did you know that we all need healthy fat… especially kids? We need fat for proper growth, development, absorption of vitamins, and for hormones to work properly. Our brains are 60% fat, which is why it is so important for kids and their developing brains to get enough fat! Ok ok enough of the science stuff and on to this delicious recipe!
