OATS--- Oats are rich in antioxidants and fiber, as well as a low-calorie carb which keeps you full for hours!

MAPLE SYRUP-- Maple Syrup is an all-natural sweetener, and provides the perfect sweetness to these yummy bites!

Madeline Hannon

ALMOND BUTTER-- Almond Butter contains healthy fats, protein, and vital minerals that your body needs. This ingredient is KEY in making these bites so filling!

RAISINS-- What is an oatmeal raisin cookie bite without raisins? Raisins are proven to aid in digestion and contain the natural sugars that help curve sweet cravings!

CHIA SEEDS-- Chia seeds = the ultimate superfood! These small seeds are loaded in Omega-3 fatty acids and protein, both things that are hard to get from most foods!

Madeline Hannon

CINNAMON-- Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, and full of flavor!
