Calling All Kids

This past Saturday Dan brought me home this healthy cooking insert from a newspaper and it had all kinds of yummy snacks that I could eat. Chocolate chip cookies with no dairy or gluten and all these recipes for healthy bite size treats that the kids could practically make on their own. The girls and I decided to try one out. It was REALLY easy, REALLY healthy, and REALLY fun for them as it only took about ten minutes and tasted great.Sisters working together to coat their treats in coconut........
Chef's in the making................................
And of course the finfished product. I will put the recipe below but dont let that stop you from inventing all kinds of new things to make the "nibblers" your own. :)

Crunchy Coconut Balls

1/4 cup almond butter

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup rice crispies (we

used organic to avoid the gluten and high fructose corn syrup)

1/2 cup shredded coconut

Combine almond butter and honey with a fork. Add cereal and mash it well with a fork. Form into bite size balls and roll into coconut. Put in fridge for 10 minutes to firm up. We also chopped up dark chocolate chips and and added them to the mix. See you can add whatever you like! Some other iseas that we are going to try is pretzels, cocoa powder, raisins. YUMMY!
