I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy snacks that are nutritious and tasty. This one fits the bill. It’s adapted from the Munchin with munchkin website, with a few alterations. The original uses pistachios and raspberries, which is a lovely combo. I’ve used blueberries with walnuts and sunflower seeds or strawberries and pecans.
They make a great breakfast or snack.
