These apple cinnamon energy bites are a great snack for breakfast or after a work out. Inspired by Brendan Brazier and his wonderful book “Thrive” for vegan athletes. I used this book when I was running marathons back in 2014. Brendan is an incredible athlete and vegan advocate.
These can be made without the almond for a nut free version which would be good for kids lunch boxes also. Best to freeze these initially and then warm up a little before eating.
