There are so many ways to make energy bites, I prefer easy and to make them with naturally sweet dates. When they are blitzed in a food processor, they taste just like caramel and there is no need to add sugar.
Dates are such a wonderful little fruit, not only do they taste deliciously sweet, they are filled with fiber, vitamins and minerals. So why not tame your sweet tooth with healthy energy bites and kick refined sugar to the curb?
