QUARANTINE MUNCHIES??? Not sure about you guys but quarantine has got me making some very frequent trips to the kitchen for snacks ... I literally think I walk over there every 5mins just to check if any new snacks have magically appeared
Well now they have! My Oat and seed POWER BARS! (GF, V)
They are the PERFECT snack for quarantine munchies hehe!!! AND they are are the perfect wholesome hormone friendly snack, as well as bring PERFECT for all my seed cycling gals!! (Just change the seeds accordingly or just add them all in!).
They are also PACKED with good fats and hormone loving nutrients to help you get through your day!
*NOTE for mamas: I crushed the seeds up smaller so that Flynn could have these too, he loved them!
