Mocha Roasted Chickpeas (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Mocha Roasted Chickpeas.  I’ve wanted to make a version of these for awhile.  So I finally got around to it and I am so glad I did.  Originally, it was just going to be chocolate, but at the last minute, I decided to add coffee extract.  They came out great!

Coconut Mojito Energy Bites (Vegan and Paleo)

Coconut Mojito Energy Bites.  I just LOVE mojitos in the summer.  I make them often and I always seem to have mint and limes in the house.   So I thought I would bring those flavors into an energy bite recipe for you.

I thought coconut would go really well with the flavors of mint and lime, so I added that in as well.  I hope you enjoy them!!

If you need to make these nut free, you can use sunflower butter and another flour in place of the cashew butter and almond flour.   Most flour substitutes should work.  The only one I would not try to use is coconut flour.  It can be a very tricky thing to sub in recipes.
