It's that time of year, back-to-school time! That means making school lunches. Not everyone's favorite task. And if you are like me, pretty quickly after the school year begins, I start to run out of ideas of what to put in those lunches. And pretty quickly the kids start complaining that they are tired of the same old things. So here's an idea, try making the Easy Monster Peanut Butter Protein Balls Recipe.
Look at how fun these are! You could even adjust to ingredients to use nut butters instead of peanut butter, or different candy pieces instead of M&M's. How about using the holiday colored M&M's to go along with the seasons. Your kids will think that is so cool.
