Whether you start your day running at the gym, riding your bike or leisurely sipping your cup of coffee while reading, there is one component that stays the same: We all need something to eat. Enter today's post featuring 3 step energy-packed bites that are a great source of nutrients and way to fuel your to-be busy day. 

What do we love about these energy balls? Here's a quick recap: 


Easy Prep:

Are you someone who hates cooking? Then these are the perfect solution for you and breakfast time. Clocking in at only 5 minutes to make, there's no excuse not to try them!


On-The-Go:

If you find yourself forever hungry whenever you leave your house, these energy balls will be your saviors. Pack them in a reusable container, throw them in your purse or backpack, and you have a healthy snack for a midday slump.


Healthy and Nutritious:

The best part about these energy bites is that they are small portions but filled with peanut butter and oats, both great sources of fiber, so you'll feel full quickly! That means healthy eating with benefits. Complement the bites with some of our Breakfast Blend Whole Bean Coffee! A medium roast, awakening blend that will go perfectly with these energy bites.
