Today was one of those mornings where my 4-year-old refused to eat breakfast. I went through the list of usual options: Oatmeal? Toast with peanut butter? Apple muffin with sesame butter? Fried egg with ketchup? He replied with a definitive, “No. Neverland!” (It’s his new expression.) So then I got creative.
Perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up! Apricots and dates give these tasty slices enough sweetness and flavor that no one will suspect they are sugar-free. I added hemp seeds to give an energy boost, but you can substitute sesame seeds or chopped sunflower seeds if that’s what you have on hand.
