Peppermint Energy Bites 

Prep Time

Prep Notes

Get ready to work with your hands. Consider this multitasking by forcing yourself to relax, unwind and make something healthy and delicious. I love spending time in the kitchen with my kids and getting them involved in making these. With no baking necessary, they can even make them on their own.
