These rich mocha flavoured energy bites with some slivered almonds to add a little crunch are the perfect snack to satisfy your sweet tooth. A healthy snack to keep us busy moms full while we race around to after school programs or chase those little munchins around the house.
It seems with two kids getting into their teens I have turned into a children’s taxi. Running to dance, hockey, football and various kid meet ups means snacking on the go is just a fact of life. Quick snacks that pack a good does of protein to keep me satisfied on the go are a must of in my house.
Energy bites are my go to snack because there are so many yummy versions out there the flavours are really endless. But when I whipped up a batch of these Almond Espresso Energy Bites the other day that I found the recipe for on the Beachbody Blog I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
I mean as a mom who doesn’t have fishy crackers, granola bars, sometimes a warm cheese string or two in their purse that was grabbed for the kids racing out the door just in case practice goes a little long and they starving children proclaim they might die of starvation on the ride home if they can’t eat right that minute. We need snacks too and probably more so because we are stuck bored at practice and a healthy snack means no snacking at the local coffee shop during the wait.
Not typically a mocha person I bought a bag of the Cafe Latte Shakeology flavour but to be honest it was ok but not my favourite. So my bag had been sitting on my counter for a few weeks looking a little lonely. Now I wish I had more so because I only had enough left in the bag for one batch of these beauties. Looks like I need to order more!
