The Quick, the Easy, the Portable Paleo Snack: The Torta!

The Portable lo carb Paleo Snack: The Torta!3- ONLY THREE INGREDIENTS and THREE STEPS!

So often I hear complaints about needing something quick and easy and on-the-go. Well these little guys are perfect for any boat trip, beach day, picnic, car snack, work snack, or kid snack. This paleo snack travels well and is a favorite in my house. My kids enjoy them cold out of the fridge; however, I prefer to pop them in the microwave for two minutes for a warm snack. They are great with tomatoes slices on top, crumbled over a salad, or dipped in homemade ketchup, hot sauce,  and/or mustard.  They can also be enjoyed with a piece of cheese on the side or melted over the top. The best part is these snacks are super  fast and super simple to create from start to finish!
