Busy schedules are the epitome of the everyday lifestyle. For me, the key to enduring a full day of errands, work, or school is having an easy and tasty snack to boost my energy! I am all about convenience when it comes to snacking; therefore, I love to find ways to set myself and others up for snacking success!
The importance of your snacking is not only the convenience factor, but also the nutrients our snacks contain. Finding filling snacks that provide balanced nutrition can be made easy with recipes like these no-bake energy bites. My mom and I have always loved finding new ways to satisfy our sweet tooth, while including our daily nutrients within these recipes and foods we eat.
These no-bake energy bites have been by far our favorite snack to make because they are both nourishing and tasty, as well as easy. They can be tailored to your own liking by modifying the recipe with the addition of some of your favorite fruit and spices. These energy bites are also great to have in your fridge for easy access and can be kept up to a week. Snacking can be exciting, especially when they taste like sweet goodness!
