Butter Bark Bites

I absolutely love these little guys! They are the perfect snack or sweet treat and are also wonderful in helping to maintain energy levels throughout the day. In my series 3 Simple Ways to Better Health, I described eating fat as one of the best ways to help maintain maintain stable blood sugar levels throughout the day. Fat does not make you fat! In fact, it is the body's preferred source of energy! So, make these Butter Bark Bites and have on hand for when you need a little boost of energy.
