Cason has his FIRST day of Mommy’s Day Out today. Which means, me packing his backpack, folder, lunches, snacks and all the fun stuff you need for Pre-k!

On a side note … my baby boy is in PRE-K!! When did that happen!?

One of the things that’s different this year compared to other years is allergies! In past years I haven’t had to deal with allergy issues in any of his classes. But this year there are nut allergies. So … no peanut butter!!! (insert crying emoji)

Luckily pumpkin is a great filler. Instead of adding peanut butter to these energy bites I just used pumpkin puree!

These energy bites are great for snacks throughout the day at school (ahem… or at work) and a great after school snack. They have 6 grams of fiber in each bite and 4 grams of protein! Plus they are pretty darn tasty AND  you get to say that you got your child to eat ground flax seed and chia seeds! Mom for the win!

Bon Appetit my friends and Happy Hump Day!
