I was asked to do a recipe demo at the Wednesday market again this year. This year, I wanted to make something sweet that would be a good after school snack and use seasonal market ingredients. With all energy bite recipes I have done over the years, it was a natural choice to develop another energy bite recipe. I gave myself an A+ for sourcing 5 of the 7 ingredients from the market!
