February is National Snack Month! These breakfast poppers can be eaten any time of the day. They are a fun snack that does not call for baking and are both nut free and gluten free. The mixture can be rolled into balls you can “pop” into your mouth. Treat yourself to an afternoon pick me up. Happy snacking!
