Perfect for popping in your purse or your kids’ lunch bags, these Energy Bites are just the thing to keep you going strong!

This incredibly simple snack recipe was born out of the necessity to bring nut-free, healthy food  items to school. Fortunately, my children do not go to a school that requires this, but I know so many of you do. Gone are the days of packing a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch at many schools due to peanut allergies.

You will love the replacement of traditional peanut butter with the flavor and creaminess of SunButter, an alternative made from sunflower seeds. It’s amazing the varieties of products we have to choose from these days, isn’t it?

The jelly ingredient in these energy bites is replaced with dried strawberries. Feel free to use any dried fruit though. Strawberries just happen to be a favorite in our house!
