Strawberry Cashew Puff Bites

Strawberry cashew puff bites. How amazing does that not sound? Sweet cashewbuttery (is that even a word?) snack balls made with cashewbutter, strawberry jam, puffed quinoa and amaranth.

These bite sized treats are filled with healthy fats from the cashewbutter and chopped cashews. (If you don’t like cashews, you can switch them out with any other nuts and nutbutters) I will definitely be bringing some with me to school. The best part? They only take 15 minutes to make!
