Do you ever hit a wall at 3:00pm or the kids come home from school and are starving? This is the story of my life and I’m always in need of some sort of sweet snack. Normally I don’t want heavy sweets (even though I eat them all the time), but I just need something to give me that mph. To last the rest of the day.

I haven’t really been watching what I’ve been eating since moving to Vegas. So I decided that it’s time to get into shape and watch those calories. Have you ever noticed once you start watching those calories that you’re craving sweets All. The. Time!!

I’ve been going on Instagram for motivation lately and I’ve seen these little snack bites all over. Of course the ones I see are healthy and good for you, but come on that’s not what my blog is about. I’m about easy go to meals, in this case snacks. I honestly think if I had to cut sweets out of my diet, I’d get depressed. Seriously not joking.

What I’ve decided is to cut back on my calories and eat smaller meals. At least this way I could eat the same things I always eat, but smaller portions.

When I made these snack bites I wasn’t sure if the oatmeal was going to get soft. The only way I’ve only ever eaten oatmeal is warmed up, but I’m learning all these new ways you can eat old fashioned oats. It’s very exciting!! I hope you all enjoy these snack bites as much as I did.
