Hi guys! As you know, school is coming up and it’s time to stock up on snacks to keep you going through the school day. These energy bites taste amazing, and the addition of oats, dates, hemp hearts makes them a hearty snack. Plus, you can sneak an extra serving of veggies into your day by adding zucchini! The cocoa totally masks it and you won’t even know it’s there. Enjoy!
