From JJ, “This is a recipe we use ALL the time. It’s great for breakfast or a quick snack. I usually make a double batch and freeze half. It’s fun to experiment with the ingredients too. Just be aware that using other nut butters (like almond butter) tends to make the energy bites fall apart more easily. My kids love these, and so do I!”
