Hey y’all!  I hope you had a great weekend! I spent my Saturday working so I can enjoy one last week at the beach before all the school hubbub begins.  BUT today, we had family day and spent the afternoon at the movie theatre watching Pete’s Dragon.  Have you seen it?  If not, take your tissues…holy, it’s a real tear jerker…like two minutes in. So, be ready….because I was not. I don’t remember the original Pete’s Dragon being sad, I think I need to watch it again to refresh my memory. But anyway…let’s talk about school lunches and snacks and stuff.

So, three weeks until my baby boy gets on the big school bus to start kindergarten. Every single time I think about it I feel a little sick…and sad….and want time to stop completely. Or just slow down. But since I can’t do that I’m going to make healthy snacks to eat while he’s away because that’s better than eating a cookie. Am I right?  And then I can pack the healthy snacks in my little guys lunch and make things so much easier knowing he’s well nourished and energized. 🙂

These Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites are so easy to make and taste almost like an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.  I won’t lie…they don’t taste EXACTLY like a cookie but the flavors are amazing and you’ll feel full, satisfied and energized.  I love to pop one right before my trip to the gym and they’re fantastic as after school snacks for the kids.  They last in the fridge for up to a week but really…..you’ll eat them all before Wednesday. Trust me. Make extra.

I love having energy bites on hand for snacking emergencies and usually have a variety around to mix things up like these Cherry Chia Pecan Bites which were featured in Self magazine or these Pumpkin Spice Bites that are perfect for fall!
