4 Energy Bite Recipes to Fuel Your Workday | Easy, Healthy Snack Recipes

June 15, 2018

 

So your morning didn't go exactly as planned and you find yourself rushing out the door to hop in the car (or on the subway) and head to work without even packing lunch - let alone having the time to prep a few healthy snacks. During an 8-9 hour workday, the snacking is real. And it's important to have healthy options in your desk drawer so you're not tempted by the platter of donuts sitting down in the cafe. These energy bite recipes are quick and easy to make, can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week, and make the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. They are packed with protein, which will help keep you full and satisfied until it's time to clock out for the day. Check out four of my favorite energy bite recipes below.
