Toasted Coconut and Walnut Energy Bites

My clients LOVE energy bites and for good reason – they are the perfect grab-and-go snack and there are so many different flavor combinations to choose from. The coconut and walnuts in these bites add a good amount of healthy fat and the dates add fiber to help keep you full. I also like having
