There are a lot of fruit and nut bars on the market. They have good ingredients but the liability of packaging is that I find that often the nuts have gone bad. Training your taste buds to detect what a rancid oil tastes like is a good skill because rancid oils are dangerous. More on that later… This recipe is one you can make at home allowing for as much variety as you like. You can change up the type of dried fruit, nuts or nut butter you use. It’s a quick, easy, fun recipe and the bites are packed with protein and healthy fat. is a delicious, raw, vegan recipe for energy bites!
