Coconut and Tahini Energy Bites – These coconut tahini energy bites are so tasty and the perfect afternoon pick me up, made with Dorset’s new honey granola and bit of unsweetened coconut and tahini.

The shredded coconut and honey add a bit of extra sweetness, and I absolutely love the added sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds and walnuts that add a rough and crunchy texture to the energy bites!

Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies – These cookies are the perfect hybrid between chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin. I even used spelt flour to make these cookies high-fibre and whole wheat alongside the super high fibre muesli!
