Ok, so the lunch ideas are failing. Logan has be coming home at 4pm having survived off peanuts and crackers.
He refuses to eat cold pasta, or beans and rice. According to the mommy group, there is an alleged microwave, I lack interest in raising the issue.
I’ll leave the up to all the other super mamas out there.
So we’re back to the drawing board.
1.5 C of rolled oats
7 large Medjool Dates
Pinches of coconut ( let’s not complicate this)
1 Tablespoon or less of cacao ( I did less, have mercy on his teachers)
1 Tablespoon of nut-butter (the nut allergy phenomenon isn’t alive in Panama, so nuts can be brought to school)
I included orange zest this time- I wanted to be extra.
Pulse these lovelies in the processor now. Roll into balls. Add droplets of water if it’s too dry and balls don’t ball up. Makes approx. 12- depending on size. You could double up the recipe if you want it to last more than a day or two.
This recipe was a complete failure for my picky eater who brought them back barely untouched. He explained he did eat them, he nibbled on the edges. My 2 year old however devoured them. Can’t win them all.
