What are energy bites / balls?

Energy bites are small bite sized snacks that you can make in your own kitchen to replace all of those pre-packaged and processed snacks you buy from the store.

In only a few minutes, you can create your own energy balls that are delicious and packed with protein and healthy ingredients. They require no baking and are delicious for breakfast, snack time and even dessert. You are going to love them if you’ve never tried them!

What makes energy bites so great?

Energy bites are a great alternative to sugary snacks.

They are homemade, so you know exactly what goes in them. This is a fabulous solution when you are trying to cut out processed foods.

These are healthy and delicious options for those who are gluten free and/ or have nut allergies. You can enjoy all the yumminess of sweets with options like chia seed, protein and other nutrition dense ingredients. A great alternative to cookies and candy bars.

They are also no-bake and so simple to make ahead. No heating up the kitchen or standing in front of a hot stove all day! I love to keep them in my freezer for a quick grab-and-go snack to help get me from lunch to dinner!
