Tosca Reno's Backpack Kisses

Without further ado, I give you the NatureBox winner:

Congrats, girl...and best of luck on your weight loss journey. You can do it, just put your mind to it. And don't forget to add some fitness and fun to that bucket list, too. Also—the Mighty Mix is awesome, and quite possibly my favorite item in the box. Can't wait for you to try it!

Speaking of trying something.
Tosca Reno, if you're reading this, your backpack kisses are ah-MAY-zing!

I wasn't going to wrap them in foil, but come cute?

And also quite portable, so I figured that taking the time to wrap a few wasn't going to hurt me.

I know, these look familiar. They're very much like the protein bombs I make all the time, and as you know, those things are highly adaptable to different tastes and ingredients—and Tosca's recipe was a combination I hadn't really used before, so I gave it a go. WITHOUT REGRET...well, I do sort of regret not being able to eat just one. Sigh.

I followed her recipe almost completely, swapping out half of the hemp seeds for Chia seeds because I only had one tablespoon. I don't normally keep hemp seeds in the pantry, but I happened to have a sample from somewhere. They remind me of Chia seeds in that they provide a good dose of Omegas. I don't usually keep protein powders in the house, either.

Both were great.

Seriously, go make Tosca's kisses. It's're prepping food for the week, right? It helps. Oh, and —comin' atcha tomorrow with another giveaway. If you have kids, you'll love this one.

Question: If someone were to raid your pantry or refrigerator, what might they say is the oddest item you've got stashed away? (These hemp seeds would have been the winner in my kitchen.)
