Do you ever need just about half of an energy bar to get you going?  There are so many times when I'm off to yoga too early in the morning to eat, but I need just a little something in my stomach before I start moving . . . Problem solved!  

These Chia Seed Buddha Balls (appropriately named by my sister's fiancΓ©) are a perfect healthy bite for those times when you need just a little something to get you going, but not weigh you down.  Let's say YES to no more half eaten granola bars waiting for you on the countertops :D

I have a few different versions of these so stay tuned for more!
