Optimal Energy Bites.

With the exams about to start I have enclosed a very easy recipe that will provide plenty of energy in a small bite sized portion. Handy when your studying & don’t want to have to leave your desk or don’t feel like a big meal. They provide plenty of good nutrition in a small bite.
These will keep well in the fridge (if there not all gone)! for 3-4 days.
Best of luck to everyone starting there exams tomorrow.
