Kids Strawberry Coconut Energy Bites

Sharon Palmer

Who needs sugary sweets for kids, when you can make super easy, healthy, no-added sugar, no-bake treats in your own home kitchen? That’s right! I’m sharing my fabulous recipe for Kids Strawberry Coconut Energy Bites for the kids (big and small) in your home. These nutritious and delicious power bites include an entire pouch of Sprout Organic Strawberry Apple Beet Red Beans in the recipe, bringing you a great source of organic, healthy, whole plant foods in every bite. Just whizz the ingredients together in a food processor, roll them in coconut, and let your kids enjoy them! These power balls—filled with healthy carbs, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants—are perfect for healthy snack time, lunchboxes, and play breaks.
