Quick & Easy Cocoa Bites

April 30, 2018

One of my favorite ingredients to use is oats. Whether it's for breakfast or snacks it's a simple base or additive to create a healthy and delicious treat. 

 

These Cocoa balls are perfect for anyone that wants to create a home-made sweet without having to use too many ingredients nor take up too much time in the kitchen.

 

Aside from being quick and easy to make they are dairy-free.
