Peanut Butter Snack Balls (free printable)

Since the New Year, I have been trying to consistently meal prep for the upcoming week. Some weeks I have, and some I haven't. I am really trying to get back on a healthy schedule. Although time consuming, meal prepping makes it easier to be more successful staying on track.

Lately, I still feel so crazed and pressed for time. I find myself skipping meals or waiting too long to eat and then ending up starving. By the end of the day, I settle for whatever will be the quickest and that usually leads to not so healthy options.

So, I decided I needed to make some grab and go snacks so I don't have the excuse of not having the time to make something.

These snack bites are so easy and so delicious. I also love them as a healthy dessert option :)

What you need
2 cups old fashion oats
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1. Mix all ingredients together
2. Let chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes
3 Use a tablespoon scoop to make small balls

TIP- I divided up the balls into sets of 3 or 4, wrapped them in tin foil, and stored them in the fridge to make it even easier to literally grab and go :)

Summer is quickly approaching and I am feeling the pressure to "lose the baby weight." I actually really hate that expression. Like, hey I just grew a human inside of my body for the past 10 months, now let me find the closest crowded mall and "lose the baby weight" right there :)

Losing the baby weight is something I want to do for myself. Feel confident. Love and appreciate the body that gave me the two most beautiful babies and greatest gifts in my life.
