Pecan Pie No Bake Energy Bites

Pecans…

The taste of my childhood.

I grew up in Paris but spent summers in El Paso Texas where mom was from, with my grandparents. Those were fun and loved filled summers and they were also filled with all sorts of wonderful foods.

And yes, you guessed it, pecans!

My grandma made the best pecan pie in the world!

When I made the crust for my Vegan Chocolate Cheese Cake it brought back childhood memories and I knew I had to capture those in a special and healthy way.

Voila!

These pecans bites are super simple to make and a wonderful recipe to share with your little ones. Just consider yourself warned… They are way too easy to gobble down!
