No Bake Energy Bites
This homemade treat is packed with super foods and totally guiltfree. Keep a batch around to satisfy your sweet cravings!
This recipe is incredibly versatile- add or subtract ingredients to your preference. Use agave in place of honey to make it vegan. Use sunbutter in place of peanut butter to make it school lunch friendly.
Cacao nibs bring a slight bitterness to balance out the sweet raw honey. I love using them to replace chocolate chips. You’ll get a dose of antioxidants and minerals, minus the sugar. Read about the full health benefits of cacao nibs here.
