They are perfect to be made up in bulk over the weekend and then just chuck them in your lunch box each day during the week for  a great afternoon pick me up. You can also freeze them and grab them as you need. They’re delicious popped in the microwave for 10 seconds and served with a small amount of cream cheese! Yum!
