Dear readers, my family and I are about to move for the second time this year. We are about to embark on an 8 hour car ride with all of our things and three kids in tow. We need snacks. Healthy ones. Enter: the miraculous date ball. I first started making these when my cravings for Lara bars got too extreme (they’re expensive, guys!). When my third baby came around and I was nursing every second of every night and day, these quick bites saved my life. They’re packed with nuts and fruit, sweet and a bit salty, good fiber and fast energy. I have to hide them from my kids so they don’t eat them all. I’m not sure if that’s a selling point or not.
