Be warned that these are pretty addictive. Luckily, they are pretty healthy too so you won't feel too bad if you eat the whole batch in one day, not that I'd do that (hehe). If you like the taste of spirulina, or want to supercharge them a little more, add 1 teaspoon spirulina. You can also use any nut butter instead of seed butter if you'd like.
This make a great post-long run treat and it's nice because it won't sit heavy in your stomach yet the texture is taste is extremely satisfying. Enjoy!
