Energy Bites

2016-05-12 14.10.18I’m sure you’ve all seen these little bites all over the internet in the last few years.  I bet most of you have even made some version of them. They might be called something else or have a few different ingredients in them, but they all are very similar. Some call for coconut, but since no one in my family likes coconut, I leave that out. I’ve been making them for some time now, but it’s been awhile since I made a batch. I don’t know why it’s been so long, because they are seriously loved by all the members of this household. My almost 9 year old takes them to school as a snack and the 5 and 3 year old eat them as snacks here at home too. I love it when they have healthy snacks like this!  I wasn’t sure I would blog them because most people already make them, but I wanted to have them documented for myself. If you haven’t seen these bites or tried them yet, then I suggest you do so very soon.  It’s a good healthy snack for the entire family.
