Maple Almond Energy Bites for the days where you need a healthy on-the-go snack. They are no bake, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, use only natural sugar and packed full of deliciousness.
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a ‘healthier’ sweet treat on the blog and I thought the best way to come back was with these maple almond energy bites. Or bliss balls, whatever you like to call them.
These use minimal ingredients, are no bake and are refined sugar free, dairy free, gluten free (depending on the oats used) and vegan.
These are perfect on the go snacks, lunchbox fillers or a ‘healthier’ dessert for the nights when you want something sweet.
