Fit Friday - Power Bites and Legs

Happy Fit Friday everyone! I woke up to a wonderland and snow, wishing I could go run in it. The snow and ice make my husband nervous for this prego mama, one little fall and he becomes a worry wart.
Ruthie is here from Cooking with Ruthie to share a yummy recipe for power bites. My family discovered sunflower butter a while a go, it is a delicious staple at our house. Having a kid with allergies helps you think outside the box at times. Try these out for a fun on-the-go snack.

Cinnamon Raisin Power Bites are packed with whole grain oats, chia seeds, milled flaxseed, raisins, sunflower seeds and sunflower butter- they're so good for you and taste amazing! Cinnamon Raisin Power Bites on www.cookingwithruthie.com packed with good for you ingredients that taste amazing!
I love to keep some of these in our fridge, they're the perfect pick me up snack in the middle of the day! I have a few different varieties for you to enjoy... Raw Bars or Bites are simply different shapes for the same type of raw bar recipe- Berry Medley Raw Bars, Chocolate Trail Mix Power Bites, Almond Joy Power Bites, Dark Chocolate Raw Bars, Healthy Power Bites, and Almond Power Bites. Any of these recipes can be pressed into a pan to make bars or rolled into balls to make bites! Any shape you make them just put them in an air tight container and then into the fridge… they’ll easily keep for up to week.
