  1. I made these and they are yummy and satisfying. The prep/clean up time is definitely more than 15 minutes mainly from the gooey mess left in the food processor from the almond butter mixture! If you want to make fewer bites, either pick strawberries or blueberries as your fruit and make half a batch (read through entire recipe steps for this). Both fruits make delicious bites. Since the recipe made a generous quantity, I’ve been giving the them to some of my workout friends.
