Nothing better than simple snacks to take on the run as a busy mama, especially this time of year as the kiddos are heading back to school!

One of my all time favorites (and my kiddos too) are Energy Orbs.  You can get my original recipe here.

Going to provide a few new combinations this week for those of who you are moving beyond the basics and wanting a little variety in your orb world.
