Every single Friday I breathe a sigh of relief lately. I survived! Training. College tours. Dogs. Teenage daughters. Politics. Life in general. I’ll admit lately it’s been life is just hard. I managed two nights that were in excess of 10 hours of sleep. My body is showing the fatigue lately and I’m embracing it.
I was up for a nice little easy treat that was healthy for for my girls. My husband, as I’ve shared, is allergic to chocolate – still cannot imagine that curse. But these little cookie bars I sliced into bite-sized pieces. They are packed with chickpeas and almond butter so YES on the protein!! These are a totally tricky food that you can smile about as your kids gobble them down. Perfect for after school snacking on in their lunches for school. Plus they have a great soft inner texture like a gooey cookie. My daughter even warmed them and put pieces in her nice cream – points for creativity!
