Traveling has its ups and downs.
Pro: You’re going somewhere awesome (I hope)! No work! Woo hoo!
Con: I have to pack and squeeze 4 pairs of shoes in a carry on? (Psh, I’m not paying $25 to check it) Wait, you mean I have to come back from this trip? Well drat.
Something that could be an pro or a con of traveling: snacks. I know snacks should always be a pro, but I’ve had trips where I bring all this awesome travel food; peanuts, granola bars, apples, the list goes on! But, it wasn’t what I wanted at that moment. You know, those $15 tacos sounds way better, while also costing as much as an entire meal at a restaurant in the regular world outside of the airport. See ya peanuts!
But, the good news about these Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Date Bites is that they are super easy to throw together, travel perfectly, and taste like cookies while being fairly healthy. Peace out airport food that I have to take a loan out to pay for, I’m sticking to my balls of cookie goodness!
