Salty Sweet Energy Bites For When You Need A Little Pick Me Up

These craving crushing energy bites come together in just minutes and contain health boosting ingredients that help fight cancer and disease, boosts your mood and lowers your blood pressure.

This week, I’m working overtime, buzzing from one meeting to another, a few errands, a couple of grocery store runs, one lunch date, one happy hour, and three nights and a Saturday morning of tennis! My calendar alerts are definitely working overtime.

That being said, I’ll take any excuse to be out soaking up this fab Spring sunshine that’s been warming up Houston lately, even if that means an overbooked week of errands. So, no complaints here!

I’ve got my windows down, my new shades on, and my podcasts are a-playin’.

And I’ve got these tasty energy bites packed along for the ride!

The smoky, salty flavor of the roasted almonds rounds out the sweetness of the almond butter, honey and coconut in these bites perfectly.

And in the midst of a crazy day of running all over town, they also provide the perfect pop of protein to keep me energized — definitely what I need today!

So if you’re looking for a new sweet-n-salty snack, breakfast, or even a healthier dessert, you’ve gotta try ’em.
