Energy bites, or energy balls, whatever you’d like to call them, are a wonderful, quick, and easy snack to have available!
As the name suggests – these are an excellent pre or post-workout snack, treat, or speedy breakfast if you need an energy boost.
There are SEVERAL reasons to try these little treats, not least of which is how simple they are!
Have your kids help so they feel more involved in making their food.
Also, energy bites are versatile, so you can get creative to make unique energy balls catered to your family’s taste buds.
Each recipe below has a fantastic combination of protein, healthy carbs and fats, and fiber, and several have even more nutrients thanks to additional ingredients such as pumpkin, turmeric, and blueberries.
So, the health benefits vary, but you can pretty much count on energy balls (made with good ingredients like these) to support healthy weight control, mood improvement, lean muscle building, reduce inflammation, and more.
I always try to have different energy bites in the fridge and freezer in sealed containers for easy access!
These are my favorite in the Spring and Summer months because they’re super refreshing!
They’re also an EXCELLENT nutrient-packed treat for children and growing teenagers, so prepare a few to store in the kitchen, and you can grab them as an after-school snack or to keep your energy up in the summer heat!
I wanted to finish off this list with another fantastic brownie bite recipe! If you’re anything like me and love tasty brownies, you HAVE to try these.
I hope you can try one of these energy bite recipes for anything from a morning energy boost, something to get you through a challenging workout, a go-to snack to help satiate cravings and keep you satisfied until the next meal, or simply as a treat!
I love all of these, and I think you’ll find one (or several) that you like too, but remember that you don’t have to follow the recipes EXACTLY.
Have a little fun and experiment until you discover the perfect combination for you and your family.
