I have a couple of fussy eaters (named London and Etta), and these offer an added dose of protein and energy to their diets. They make a delicious healthy snack or breakfast and are excellent paired with coffee (for someone named Siri).
Technique tip: Sometimes wetting your hands helps with a tight, clean roll.
Swap option: For nut allergies, you can sub sunflower seed butter. Small amounts of protein powder are fine for kids, but if you'd rather skip that entirely, you can omit or add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder instead.
Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.2.
