Today’s recipe is from one of my favorite paleo bloggers Juli Bauer.  You can check out her blog at paleomg.com.  This recipe is very easy and only includes a few ingredients and a food processor!  I vary the recipe from time to time, and as you can see from the picture I like to add TJ’s Pumpkin Pie Spice in the Fall!  These are great to grab on the go or to have as a dessert 🙂
