Nut Free Energy Bites

Nut Free Energy Bites

I made these nut free energy bites for my friend who is allergic to nuts as she was always left out when my other friends were tasting my energy snacks. I would normally use sticky dried fruit and nuts but instead of nuts I used sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds are rich in magnesium and selenium and give that nice crunch and texture.
