Recipe: Vanilla Cranberry Energy Bites

When you have plans to spend almost 40 nights outside over the camping season, it makes sense to have some variety when it comes to snacks and meals.

I made up these Vanilla Cranberry Energy Bites the same day that I cracked a cerveza and made Coconut, Lime and Macadamia nut energy bites.

I love dried cranberries! I put them in my oatmeal, salads, for snacking and in energy bites. These bites are delicious and super easy to make if you have a food processor.
