This healthy and delicious sweet treat has only 5 ingredients and takes only a few minutes to make. You simply process almonds, dates, coconut, rice malt syrup (a great sugar substitute) and water together, press it into a baking try, leave it to harden in the refrigerator and then cut or stamp out ‘bites’. Easy, right?
These Delicious Bites are perfect for those times you need a quick and healthy snack on the go. Enjoy a couple of Bites with a piece of fruit and a drink and you’ll be ready to tackle anything.
