Easy to Make and Healthy, Too!

These energy bites are quick and easy to make. Get the children involved—they will enjoy making them, too. These little snacks can be put in plastic bags and served at kids' events, or you can bring them to work for an afternoon pick-me-up. I will also provide some of the substitutions I use when I want a little variety. The best part is that they are also good for you and taste great.
