Super simple, your run of the mill energy bites! They are super quick to make, quick to eat, and easy to bring with you when you’re off for a hike, a day on the beach (although, maybe a little sticky for the beach) or are running out the door and just need a snack. You could spruce them up a bit and add some dried cranberries, cherries, or role them in shredded coconut. Sub in whatever you like – different nut butters, sesame or hemp seeds rather than chia; add chocolate chips if you want to go double chocolate! You go gurl, it’s your wulrd.
