The majority of the time I’m in the mood for something sweet. Whether it’s dessert or a midday pick-me-up, I want it in the form of a cookie. So here are some no-bake-energy-bites for you! I know things have been pretty crazy with COVID-19 and Easter prep, so here are some fast energy bites to have on hand. All the time.
Although caramel apple seems more of a fall flavor combo, today’s recipe can certainly be enjoyed anytime of the year! It’s a perfect ball of bliss and energy–with a tart apple flavor and a sweet carmel finish.
Here’s what you’ll need…
Optional Add-ins include chia seeds, flax meal and hemp hearts.
A healthy and convenient treat!
This recipe is super tasty and has a great flavor profile, but it’s also healthy and convenient. They stay fresh in the fridge for two weeks and in the freezer for two months, so you can have them on hand when you’re running out the door! When I’m heading to class or to a meeting, I love sticking these in a container and throwing them in my backpack to enjoy later.
In general, energy bites are a super easy way to pack in some healthy fats, protein, and fiber. You can check out my full recipe for these energy bite recipes here:
