This recipe is shared by DK Books, who have brought out a new healthy recipe book for 2016, called ‘Energy Bites’.
The book is filled with high-protein, nutritious snack balls that are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts and make tasty treats.
These Superfood Granola Bites really stood out to me because of the vibrant colour, plus I love anything with cinnamon in it.
Hope you enjoy this healthy sweet snack as much as I do and be sure to check out the rest of the book for more!
