Lupus and Nutrition: My favorite Protein Oatmeal Bites

Here's a recipe that makes me feel good - Protein Oatmeal Bites. 

So good. So filling. So full of protein.

Two of these in the morning with a cup of tea sets me off in the right direction. A sensible lunch, plus another one of these as an after school snack along with some fruit gets me through until dinner. 

My kids consider them a good go-to for breakfast, a snack, or as dessert. With just 1 1/2 Tablespoons of brown sugar in the whole batch, that makes me pretty happy! 

Here's the recipe. If I can find the original owner, I will update to give credit!
