So, I think I’ve reached the question and answer phase of motherhood…

E: Can I have some more raisins? Where do raisins come from?

Me: You know, raisins come from grapes, right?

E: Where do grapes come from?

Me: They grow on a vine.

E: What’s a vine?

oh dear…I don’t know if I like where this is headed!

Anyway, the boy loves raisins, and I love that they’re a great alternative to more sugary snacks.

I was also impressed to find out that they also have lots of fiber, potassium, and iron. And at about 20 cents per serving for organic raisins, they’re also affordable.

We all know cooking from scratch saves money, but we’re all so busy it can be tough to find time to actually do it!

I put together a huge batch of these healthy 6-ingredient energy bites in about 15 minutes. (Without help from the kids, I think you could do it in 7 minutes.) I put enough for few days worth of snacks in the fridge and stashed the rest away in the freezer for later.
