If you’re like me and you have a major sweet tooth than these guys will be your new best friend! I was determined to find a healthy sweet little something that I would not feel guilty about eating (even if it’s more than once a day!). This recipe is loaded with lots of nutrients such as flaxseed which is high in fibre + low carb. Chia seed which is a natural antioxidant + heart healthy oats! A hint of orange adds the perfect finishing touch to the overall sweet flavour.

This recipe is quick and easy and will for sure become a staple in your family’s home! They are perfect for your kids lunches, a snack to go or a little something sweet to go with your morning coffee!
