Healthy Snack for Kids….Small and Big

We have a rule when it comes to our child, only feed her things that have nutrition in it. Now we know she will eventually eat candy etc. but as long as we can keep that away we believe is good. So I try hard to find snacks and goodies that does not contain a lot of crap. I found  raw carob snacks called brownie snacks. Me and James absolutely fell in love with them and so did Isabella too. So today I decided to try to make my own and they came out really well. They contain no sugar but yet they are so sweet because of the raisins.

The finish product

Isabella thinks they are yummy.
Carob snacks, makes about 10 balls
1/2 cup blanched almonds
1/2 cup raisins (soaked for 10 minutes and then drained.
1 tbs Tahini (sesame paste)
2 tbs carob powder
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Place everything except the coconut in a food processor or in a bowl and use a hand held mixer and blend everything until smooth. Roll dough into small balls and roll them into the coconut and coat them. Place in fridge until ready to serve.
