My goal is to share with you recipes that are in season so, you can get the best taste and the best price. These Crispy Cocoa Date Bites are healthy and in season. Making this the perfect spring treat or snack. My kids and I gobbled these up. I am still on this food journey to provide my family and I more healthy foods whether it be a meal or snack . I am still taking steps to use less sugar and sweeten things naturally. These bites are the way to go!  You can eat these for a breakfast on the go, mid-day snack, or pack it for a picnic. If you are not sure you will like dates just try these you will not be disappointed!
