Homemade Energy Bites in Every Flavor

Energy Bites in Every Flavor

Finding a snack that is great-tasting, energy-boosting, good for you and affordable all at once is a tall order. So many of the snacks on grocery store shelves miss the mark in one way or another. Most of them miss on the nutrition front or they just taste bad. Then when you find something you love, it’s too expensive to buy on a regular basis.

I think that’s why energy bites (energy balls, power bites, whatever you want to call them) have become so crazy popular. When you make your own energy bites, you control the ingredients and oh-my-stars you can put just about anything in them! I’ve found a bunch of recipes for you using ingredients like raspberry, pineapple, lime, coffee, pumpkin, ginger and of course a variety of nuts and nut butters and  you can never go wrong with chocolate! You’re bound to find something you love here!
