NO BAKE PEANUT BITES
For dancers who love peanut butter, these energy bites are a treat! Quick and easy to make, and much less expensive than shop brought versions, these bites require no baking and make ideal snacks between classes (or even as a breakfast-on-the-go). Each bite contains a good balance of key nutrients, and the ground flaxseed represents a fantastic source of omega-3 fats, which aid recovery and reduce inflammation.
