Sweet potato energy bites

One more sleep to go! It’s Christmas Eve for anyone who celebrates – we do 🙂

I’ll keep this short and sweet – just like me.

I’ve posted every day since I started writing my blog back in May, so I’m going to take a few days off to enjoy the festive season with family.  Don’t worry, I’ll be planning some new posts, including a step-by-step guide for making puff pastry.  It’s so easy but looks so good!

But before I go, I’ll leave you with this recipe for sweet potato energy bites.  I’ve been making them (along with my ultimate energy bites and banana bread bites) to give as gifts – pretty, and healthy too 🙂  Better than truffles!
