Chocolate easter treats
With kids back at school, your busy schedule just became even busier. Making quick and healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks for everyone in the family is important, but can seem impossible with only 24 hours in a day.
These dark chocolate and peanut butter energy bites are a great way to make sure you’ve got a healthy snack on hand to help manage the chaos. This recipe rules because it doesn’t have many ingredients and there’s no cooking or baking involved.
Store-bought granola bars are a go-to snack to throw in to kids’ backpacks and lunch boxes, but come with added sugars, calories and carbs. Making homemade versions like these bites is a great way to avoid excess fats and sugars.
These energy bites are high in protein which helps to increase fat burn, keeps you hunger-free for hours and provides a good dose of fiber.
