Snack attack ruining your new year’s resolutions?
Don’t let hunger keep you from reaching your goals & sticking to your clean eating plan. Instead, remodel your snacks to fit into a balanced diet without adding any guilt or putting junk into your body. These banana oat bars were a little experiment of mine that turned out to be a huge success. They are clean, full of vitamins & minerals, & balanced with the carbs, fat & protein your body needs. Enjoy after a workout or between meals to curb your cravings!
