Hi! I’m Sabrina. I’m a mum, a wife and the business owner of Milk Me.  When I’m not working on Milk Me, I’m usually hanging out with my kids and hubby, picking up after them,  cooking for them, picking up more of their mess.... well you get the gist of it.... ;-)

So when Home Of Home Made Treasures invited me to do a guest blog I jumped at the opportunity to share my home made healthy treats.  I LOVE food but unfortunately after 2 kids, “Calories” and I just don’t get along so well anymore.  We use to be good friends (days when a late night KFC pitstop was a normal end to a Saturday night) but now all it seems Calorie wants to do is leave traces of fat on my hips.  So to curb this issue I have with that nasty thing called “Calories” I create sugar free, guilt free healthy treats for my family and I.

This is a recipe I made up all because my son never wanted to finish up the crumbly bits at the end of the Weet-Bix cereal box.   And the results......... a Winner Healthy Treat!  Here’s the recipe if you want to try it.  Look... it’s no Chocolate truffle but it’s also not laden with any unwanted unhealthy calories


Weet-bix snack balls

Ingredients: 
1 cup of crumbled Weet-bix
1/4 cup dates (chopped finely)
1/4 cup almonds (chopped finely)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup shredded coconut (to roll the balls)
1 tbsp honey or agave syrup
2-3 tbsp water

Method:
Mix all ingredients well.

 Roll into balls (wet hands make it easier to roll the balls) and roll in coconut.....
(hint: add more water if the balls are too dry. Alternative to dates put sultanas instead)
It’s never lasted more than 1 day in my household
