Toasted Superfood Energy Bites

Seeds aren’t just for the birds. This is an easy way to eat them if you are looking for a change from just sprinkling them over your trusted porridge oats. These sweet, nutty and seed packed energy bites are great if you are looking for a portable on-the-go healthy snack. If you are a fan of the caramelized taste of granola I recommend finishing these in the oven. The coconut flakes become lightly toasted and it adds a really nice texture to compliment the rest of the seeds.
