This is a healthy take on the no-bake cookie. So good and so good for you. Every time I make these power bites, I am begged for the recipe. They are a hit with both kids and adults, and always disappear quickly. For a real superfood treat, add 1 teaspoon spirulina powder and 1 teaspoon maca root powder to the mix. Spirulina will make the mixture turn green, but the essential amino acids it provides for your brain are worth a little color!
