Maple Date and Nut Snack Bites
Maple Date and Nut Snack Bites make a nutritious snack that’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup and dates. Packed with nuts, almond butter and hemp seeds they’re a great source of protein, omega 3 fats and essential minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Easy to mix together and pack in your lunch or stuff in your back pack or purse to give you a healthy energy boost throughout your day or satisfy your sweet tooth. A great change from that ordinary granola bar. Enjoy!
