These crunchy quinoa chocolate bites are one of the best things ever. They’re so simple to make and they’re packed with goodness, which will help start your day in a positive way.
The chocolate and the nuts gives it a rich flavour and the dates brings the sweetness to the mix, the ginger is the perfect touch for freshness, they are made with lots of nuts so they will really fill you up.
I love to have them as a morning/ afternoon snack.
