Coconut, chocolate, and almond all wrapped together in this Almond Joy Energy Bites recipe!
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. My kids are absolutely IN LOVE with this version of the famous cookie dough balls that we have dubbed “Almond Joy”. They have a little bit of cocoa powder, coconut, and still a lot of healthy goodness going on! A great “treat” that you can feel good about giving them.
