Cocoa Almond Bites

recipe is totally amazing and even healthier Cocoa Almond Bites

During a week of fruits-veggies-oats-and-nuts-only diet, I was craving a nutritious sweet treat. This version of the original energy biterecipe is totally amazing and even healthier–filled with healthy almonds in place of the chocolate chips. The cocoa powder makes these taste so much like No Bake Cookies that you wouldn’t believe it. These are a must make and must keep in your fridge at all times!
