Golden Turmeric Energy Bites

energy-bites-with-tumericThis recipe is based on Megan Olson’s recipe here.  I made a few modifications including using peanut butter instead of almond butter (since I’m not Paleo) and using rice syrup instead of maple syrup (since I try to be really low in my fructose consumption).  Enjoy!

These anti-inflammatory Coconut Turmeric Energy Bites pack a delicious boost of protein and superfood nutrition!
