I cannot make it from lunch time until dinner without a snack. Or two. And of course neither can my kids. They want something to eat as soon as they step off the bus. They want to eat something that tastes good. I want them to eat something healthy. These energy bites make both of us happy!
Recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites
They are full of protein, fiber, and nutrients like vitamin B1. But they taste like a treat. A little like no-bake cookies actually. Truth be told, I like them even more, because they aren’t so sweet they make my tongue hurt.
