Nutella & Flax Energy Bites


this past weekend during our family grocery shopping expedition i came across a surprise sale on Nutella which opted me to grab a jar and watch as the kids faces lit up.

they love Nutella.
i love nutella.
heck, everyone loves nutella.


  truthfully, we've been out of stock for awhile now, and i'm never one to pass on a bargain, so it was fate this jar of deliciousness was coming home with me.
 plus, i was looking for a different mix in for my favourite go to snacks...

nutella it is.
nutella for the win.


best part is we are now all stocked up on ski weekend snacks.
