Almond Butter Hearts

This has to be my favorite recipe I’ve recreated so far. The taste is amazing. Soft but crunchy with just the right amount of sweet. It has lots of ingredients that boost your energy so you can consume it before a workout, after for recovery or as a snack, which is my case.

Some of my friends where able to try it my samples and I was lucky enough to save a few to freeze for future snacks.
