Got the munchies?
Now I know these little morsels look nothing like a big chunk of chocolate brownie, but they tick all the boxes for a nutritious snack, are easy to make, can be stored in the fridge or freezer, and they haven't received a bad wrap yet. Instead of making into balls, for a faster snack, the mixture can be pressed into a tin, and after a few hours in the fridge covered with foil, be cut into squares.
For the local Highlanders, The Source Bulk Foods has opened in Springetts Arcade in Bowral.
All the ingredients for these treats can be accessed in this shop all in one go....and you only have to buy the quantities you need.
I used a food processor to help bind and chop the ingredients up a little, but if you don't have one, you can still make these no problem, just throw all the ingredients into a bowl and mix.
