Dried Fruit & Nut Bites

Snacks are important!

These were pretty awesome while on our cleanse. We made these in week 1 because we thought we were going to be starving (which wasn't the case). They are such a delicious and healthy snack.

The plus to these while on the cleanse, or anytime really, is that they are pre-made and portable! These are great on-the-go snacks! Throw a couple in your purse, backpack or lunchbox! The nuts are packed with protein and the dried fruit has fiber, both things will help keep you full.

The serving size is 4 bites but that packs a whopping 376 calories. On the cleanse you need those calories, but if you're just looking for a healthy snack just pop 1-2 of these yummy bites for an under 200-calorie snack!

I didn't process the nuts long enough so mine are a little lumpy. Be sure to really process the nuts so the balls come together better. Or, if you like the crunch, keep a few that aren't processed as much to add in.
