This is a simple, quick trick for having a snack on hand that is long lasting, and tastes just as fresh regardless of how long it sits in the fridge. One trick I forgot to mention is that I will store these in the fridge so that they’re a bit harder to chew. I also prefer chunky peanut butter, or chunky almond butter with these.
