Hawaiian Coffee Bites

Hawaiian coffee bitesMy love of all things Hawaiian inspired today’s recipe blog.

This recipe is perfect for a mid morning nutritious snack to add a little Aloha vibe to your day.

It goes perfectly with a cup of herbal tea.

I used Kona coffee from Hawaii but if you are not from the Islands or a frequenter of them  you can use any good quality ground coffee you fancy.

This one’s not for the kids!
