Homemade No Bake Cranberry Energy Bites – Healthy Christmas Dessert

  • 1/4 cup liquid honey brown rice syrup, agave syrup or date paste
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded coconut (If you’re not a fan of coconut, use ground flax seed, or oat flour)

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries or dried fruit of your choice

Optional:

  • chopped nuts or seeds

  5. Press additional cranberries evenly around the dough, if desired.
  6. Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve.
