These No Bake Brownie Energy Bites make an excellent snack that will fuel your body with energy and provide you with a host of nutrients and anti-oxidants.
I love how portable and easy energy bites are to grab, they’re one of my favourite ways to get a quick energy boost when I need one. There’s nothing more satisfying than a snack that tastes like an indulgent treat but one that you know is actually good for you. These No Bake Brownie Energy Bites taste like a fudgy dark chocolate brownie but are made by using superfoods, ingredients that are nutritious and are naturally beneficial to your health.
Making energy bites is so simple, most recipes only require some basic ingredients and a few minutes to process the ingredients together, you actually eat them raw so no baking is necessary. They’re also easily adaptable to suit your tastes, and can be made with seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, chia) to avoid any problems with nut allergies you might have at home or to make them safe for consumption at school.
These No Bake Brownie Energy Bites are full of ingredients that are good for you, contain no refined sugar and are the ultimate snack for you and your active family. If you wish, you can roll the energy bites into dry coconut flakes, finely chopped nuts or cocoa powder. Enjoy!
