Still summer here. But I am going to blink that it will be fall and back to school before I know it.
So, I am currently enjoying all the summer has to offer. I am also slowly planning for back to school with meal planning and more. That is where Mariani Probiotic Pitted Prunes come into play. Read on to find out how.
With back to school brings more crazy schedules in the morning, after school and weekends, too.
I am not going to lie or mince words. Mornings here are genuinely rough. See I am not a morning person, and neither is my younger daughter. And even though my husband and older daughter are morning people, we still struggle to get all out the door on time.
One of the worst is breakfast. Towards the end of last year, my girls found a certain lucky cereal that contains marshmallow charms. I bet you know this cereal. Let’s say that there were more marshmallows being eaten and much less of the grain cereal was being eaten by both girls.
So, I vow now to be healthier with breakfast this back to school. No more sugary cereals if we can help it.
But I also have to be mindful as I have a picky in the form of our younger daughter.
Therefore, I began recently to brainstorm healthier breakfast alternatives to not only get a jump start. But to also see which my picky eater will eat with no fuss here.Make Back to School breakfast yummy, but healthier with this NO Bake Breakfast Cookie Ball idea from @marianifamily @StopandShop #MarianiSuperPrunes #Pmedia #ad
Believe it or not, my picky eater likes raisins. And recently, I was turned onto Mariani Probiotic Pitted Prunes. And found them at my local Stop and Shop in the produce section.
But why Mariani Probiotic Prunes?
Because for starters, Probiotic Prunes from Mariani are made using California grown prunes!
I know what you are going to say that prunes are not raisins. No, I agree that they aren’t exactly. But Mariani Probiotic Pitted Prunes are so much more than raisins could ever be.
Because Mariani prunes are a prebiotic, which the probiotic needs to feed off. This prebiotic supports overall wellness and digestive health.
See the Ganeden BC30 probiotic in Mariani Probiotic Prunes is unique. They are designed by nature to survive and thrive in conditions other probiotics cannot. By surviving, Ganeden BC30 delivers active probiotics ten times more effective than the probiotics in yogurt.

And that is why I used diced Mariani Probiotic Prunes for my latest healthier back to school recipe.

This sounds like the perfect way to get a good healthy breakfast or snack into my kids before or after school- AND it will be perfect for me, too!
Aw, so happy to share with you. And trust me I enjoyed these as much as the kids did, too!! 🙂
William Holland says
You lost me with the prunes. 🙂
Have a super Monday! We would be glad to share our heat with you if you want it.
Bill, I swear these are so good that you don’t even realize that you are eating prunes. Seriously, both my kids ate and enjoyed (even my little picky eater!). But still wishing you a very Happy Monday again and we are pretty warm here. Still I will always welcome warmth sent my way!! 🙂
Meredith Spidel says

Thank you, Meredith and always my pleasure to share healthy eating and tips with you, too ?
Nellie Acevedo says
I pretty much love everything oatmeal so I can’t wait to try this yummy recipe!
Me too, Nellie and seriously this is an oatmeal lover’s delight for sure 🙂
I’m fairly probiotic obsessed in general, so these look awesome. I can’t believe we have to think about school soon. BAH Humbug!
I know I am truly not wanting to think about it either yet. But soon enough it will be here still!
J. Ivy Boyter says
I would never had considered prunes, but it does sound good! And, I swear probiotics helped my daughter make it through 1st grade without much illness 😀
I know probiotics seriously are just amazing for all they can help with. And dicing the prunes make them bite-sized similar to a raisin size. So definitely a win-win for all.
Seana Turner says
Gotta say it never would have occurred to me to make cookies with prunes. There was a day when one of my girls needed to be eating some prunes each day, and this certainly would have made the situation a lot easier. If your picky eater liked them, that is quite an endorsement!
Seana, my picky eater most definitely endorsed these with two thumbs up 😉
No way! These look so yummy and good for you!! Totally pinning 🙂
Aw, thanks for pinning and hope you can make these yummy, but good for you cookie balls soon now 🙂
Our pediatrician would LOVE this recipe. She’s a big promoter of daily prune intake. I pinned this in like 3 different places so I can’t lose it. Thanks!
Thank you so much for pinning multiple times and hope you can indeed make these soon for your family, too April 🙂
Aunt Gloria says
They sound yummy. I will try the Mariani prunes….I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy prunes. Thanks.
Aw, you are so welcome and hope you can try these now soon, too xoxo ?
What a perfect way to make one of my favorite treats more healthy!! Thanks for this recipe!
Aw, happy to share a new twist on an old favorite 🙂
Hello! So happy to find these balls as a quick and healthy snack for my daughter…I was wondering if I should add more oats? Maybe 1/2 cup instead of 3 tbsps?
So happy you found them, Anna and I think you could amend the recipe to that. But just make sure to update the rest of the ingredients to match that change, as well.
