The Harvest Kitchen

Quinoa Power Bites

QUINOA ENERGY BITES

These Quinoa Power Bites are a moist, nutty, chocolatey ball of nutritional goodness!!   The thing that holds them together are little flecks of gluten-free quinoa flakes.  You can find the quinoa flakes in the cereal section of your local health food store (where oatmeal, buckwheat, and other hot cereals are located).  The brand I use is called Ancient Harvest.     These no bake energy bites will likely find huge favor with my athlete friends and readers, but whether you’re an athlete or not…I think you’ll find these to be a really great tasting guilt-free healthy snack!!!

Kyle loves them!!!
