Sweet potato energy bites – guilt free, easy and sweet recipe

As here in Italy was a long bank holidays it was a perfect occasion not only to recreate and catch up with works but also experiment with some new recipes. This time I decided to try my hand in Sweet potato snack recipe and I must say it turned out even better than I hoped. 

Easy, fast delicious and perfect snack on-the-go. Fast to prepare and need just 4 main ingredients but still delicious and filling – so win-win situation to those who want something sweet but the same time fit and something that allows you to stick to the diet (especially helpful before Christmas holiday).

The main things you need is a peanut butter and Sweet potato, some cocoa powder and some flavors for taste+ oven and a little bit of your time. Printable recipe sheet below. (HERE is recipe how to make a peanut butter at home, like I always do. SO EASY!)  mmm,delicious Peanut butter. Try avoiding snacking! (Basically challenge not to lick a peanut butter remains from the scoop, difficult but possible).

The nice thing about these bites is that there is no sugar, no sweeteners and can be customized according to your preferences but making simple or filled with different nuts, flakes and garnishes – the possibilities are endless. If not a big fan of peanut butter, can substitute with almond butter (even though hard to imagine someone who doesn’t like peanut butter. If there is someone – please shout would like to hear from someone who doesn’t.)
