Healthy Snack Ideas | Back to Work or School Snack | No-bake Energy Bites

In this post, I am going to share two variations of a healthy snack idea with you. These no-bake energy bites can provide the fuel top-off you need to stay focused until it’s time to clock out. A good healthy snack is also kind of like a mini-break for your mind and a treat for your senses. They are ideal little pick-me-ups to keep you going. These no-bake energy bites make a great healthy snack for work or school.

They have some nutritional staying power in the form of protein, fat, and/or carbohydrates.

I recently joined a french language course in France. And I need the energy to focus every day from morning till afternoon. I grab two, or three of these energy balls, and bring them to school with me. They help me keep energized throughout the day.

I originally saw this idea on Tik Tok. So I decided to make my version of it.
