The Breakfast-Anytime Bite
If you're a granola fan, these fruity, nutty delights will be heaven for your taste buds. Their base is a combo of dried fruits (dates and dried cranberries), nuts (cashews) and coconut, plus some vanilla protein powder. Pulse the mixture in the food processor until it's the consistency of damp sand, then add a spoonful of almond milk and whiz again until you've got something that's sticky enough to roll into truffle-like spheres. The magnesium- and antioxidant-rich balls are just sweet enough, and each one is only 102 calories.
