Mini Snickers Bites
These are my new favourite sweet treat. Chewy, nutty and chocolatey… they’re perfect for an afternoon pick me up or for a sweet bite after dinner.
Did you know?? Refined sugars can impact your hormones, including your sleep hormones to compromise your sleep quality. A Snickers bar contains 30 grams of sugar, a ton of fat, and is devoid of nutrients. Chocolate and sugar can be a tempting quick fix to give us a boost of energy, but there are better alternatives! No more heading to the vending machine around that 4 pm slump- these new and improved mini snickers bites will become a new staple. Not only will they give you energy to power through the rest of your day, they're packed with nutrients, fiber, and healthy fats for a snack that you'll feel good about eating.
There are so simple to make, and unbelievably delicious. Trust me, you'll want to make these right now!
-As many medjool dates as you'd like (1 date= 1 "mini" snickers bite)

-Roasted, salted peanuts (swap this out for any other roasted nut/seeds)
-Dark chocolate chips ( you can use any chocolate you'd like!)

Close the stuffed date as much as you can.
