Chocolate Walnut and Maca Energy Bites
Raw snack bites, made of dates, nuts, and seeds that I’ve ground together in a food processor, often along with spices or superfood ingredients, are a standard part of my weekly student food rotation. They’re easy to make, portable, tasty, fun to flavor, and they save me money on the raw snack bars and energy bites that are so seductive in health food stores. I’m really trying to purchase less snack fare lately, and DIY more often; it’s one thing to buy produce and healthful, quality ingredients, but quite another to spend money on things I know I could make (more often to my liking) at home.
