This post is just another easy snack one. Again prompted from a conversation I had with a friend of mine that is new to gluten free living. She asked me a question about making easy snacks for on the go, muddy buddies came to mind or as another friend used to call it “dog chow!”
This is a snack that you can just bag up and send with your child when they are out and about with friends or family.
I don’t know about you, but there are still family members in my family that don’t know much about eating gluten free. They are learning but still have a lot of questions, so sending food along is always something I do it helps inform them and makes it easier as well.
So I thought this would be a good snack to post for anyone to make. It’s very easy, has protein and grains to it and of course it is very yummy.
