Vegan Energy Bites

Jason Sizemore, from Butterhead Kitchen, shares a recipe for Vegan Energy Bites – a snack packed with fiber and protein!

We love making a batch of these so we have a go-to snack to hold us over in between meals.  They are packed with fiber & protein & taste like a guilty-pleasure while still being pretty healthy!
