Do you ever find yourself craving a sweet snack (it usually happens to me mid-afternoon) and nothing will satisfy the urge until you get that chocolate bar, piece of candy or whatever else it is that squashes your sweet tooth? I normally find myself reaching for a piece of chocolate (or 2 or 3) or a big cookie…but since bikini season is imminent, I thought I’d try to develop a sweet & satisfying snack alternative that won’t make me feel so guilty.

I rummaged through my pantry for ingredients that are dense (i.e. have lots of fiber and healthy fats), have amazing health benefits (flax has a great amount of omega acids), and are satisfyingly sweet on their own without added sugars (agave nectar is a great natural sweetener). Then I played around with the proportions and came up with these fun & surprisingly delicious bite-sized balls of sweet goodness. They’re yummy, have a nice texture, are SUPER easy to make (no baking involved here!), and one will usually satisfy my sweet craving for many, many hours.

Give these a try! They’re also great as a pre-workout bite or for packing on-the-go – so you won’t grab that bag of Doritos out of desperation on your next road trip!
