I don’t know about you, but snacks are an important part of my day; even more so after becoming a mother of two! I am pretty particular about my snacks and won’t just grab anything. The dietitian in me requires them to be nutritious and wholesome, while the foodie in me whats them to taste amazing!
One of my all-time favourite things to meal prep are energy bites or energy balls. They come together very quickly and usually require a handful of ingredients that most people already have in their kitchens. Another great thing about energy balls are that they are great to give your children as snacks as well. If you want to learn more about why snacks are important for kids check out this post.
These energy balls feature an all-time classic flavour combination- peanut butter and chocolate! One thing I do want to mention is to read the ingredients when purchasing any type of nut butter as they can often be a loaded with sugar (find out more here).
