Mighty Munchkin Seed Balls

If you’re looking for the perfect guilt-less holiday treat to bring to parties and family gathering, look no further!  We recently developed an amazing recipe for no-cook “munchkins.” 

 

These seed and spice balls are really easy to make and perfect for cooking with kids!  The best part? There are no refined or artificial sugars and it’s packed with tons of nutrients!  We’ve always expressed that we believe in a balanced diet, filled with healthful foods that nourish your body but nobody can deny the desire for a chocolate chip cookie every once in a while.  A treat at the end of your night could mean the end of a very health conscious day for you. So what better way to avoid highly process sweets than to substitute it with a treat that’s equally delicious and downright good for you? You can feel great about treating you and your family to these delicious Mighty Munchkins!
