At the birth of my third child, my sister fixed this snack for me to have right after she was born. My midwife had some, and loved the recipe! She now gives it to all her pregnant mama’s to fix, as she says they are excellent to eat especially during that yucky first trimester. They are full of protein, and carbs which are needed to keep up your energy during pregnancy. Of course, you don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy these. My baby is six weeks old and I just fixed another batch of these. Enjoy!
