dehydrator recipe which took forever. After I tested these Energy Bites for Robin Robertson's new cookbook, the kids have asked for them at least half a dozen times. I'm glad they can make them by themselves! The first comment they made after trying the bites for the first time was "these taste like cookie dough". I don't know where they get that comparison since we rarely make cookies let alone eat the dough, but I have to agree they taste like they could be dessert. The ingredients are all healthy whole foods though, so I don't feel bad about making them often.
