These energy bites are packed full of protein and flavour and only take a few minutes to make. They’re easy to carry around, making them a great snack for school or work.
I like to take a few with me when I go on walks and trips, since I’m basically constantly hungry! Also, I like to eat them when I’m snuggled up in bed, watching a movie – just because they’re convenient out-of-the-house snacks doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them at home!
