This are excellent little energy bites! I usually add what I have and then roll in oatmeal, coconut, or left over crushed cereal. I also wrapped them individually in wax paper, place in a zip lock bag, and pop them in the freezer. A great little "go to" item when you need a quick pick up snack until you can eat a meal.

These are great. You can add in what ever you have and they make great snacks. I made them as is, and I made them with craisins and pecans. Tough part is not eating too many at once! Read More
