Cardamom Apricot Energy Bites - a super quick and easy three ingredient bite great for snacking, pre and post workout, or covered in chocolate for a decadent treat!
Fast Food Friday isn't always about big juicy awesome burgers like that one. Fast Food Friday is sometimes about exactly that - fast food. These little balls take literally minutes to make, roll, and enjoy.
I made a batch of these start to finish in the time it took my French press coffee to ... percolate? Yes, that. Sent half of them off to work with Jason, ate two with my coffee, and stored the rest in the fridge for snacks.
...and for a simple but impressive truffle (for a Halloween party, perhaps?), dip them in some melted dark chocolate:
