Like the candy bar, but with lasting energy instead of a sugar rush, these Almond Joy Energy Balls are the best snack.
I’m heading for a quick weekend trip to NYC, but the bus ride always seems to take so long. We usually make one stop along the way, but it’s at a fast food spot with limited snack options. I always hate how I feel after I eat greasy food.
Last time I made these Chewy Granola Bars, but this time I decided to make some quick energy snacks instead.
Have you tried energy balls yet? They are easy little bites to make and great for on-the-go. They are usually made with dates, nuts, seeds, and whatever other flavorings you like. I decided to make a sweet chocolate version with coconut, which reminded me of almond joy candy bars.
I added some protein powder to give me an extra boost. You can add flaxseed, hemp seeds, chia seeds, or whatever you like. What I love most about these energy balls is that they make you feel renewed without a quick sugar rush and then energy crash. As they say, food is your fuel. And these almond joy energy bites are delicious fuel!
