I spent Saturday baking snacks for my kids school lunches also decided to make some items for myself for the weeks sneaky little treats. My pantry and fridge are full to the brim with baked goods!
I made energy balls which required almond butter…(See Almond Butter blog entry), I also made raw chocolate coffee bites. I found this on The Organised Housewife’s website, but I changed it up a little to suit my tastes.
Great for a quick snack, to kerb those ‘I need chocolate’ or ‘Give me all the coffees’ moments!
