5 Minute Energy Bites

While I cannot decide what to name these bad boys, I’m just gonna pop one into my mouth πŸ˜› Energy bites have been a recent addition to my list of favourites. Well, can you blame them?! They are probably the easiest to make, after chia puddings of course! I’m a lazy girl, what can I say! πŸ˜€ But that’s just one of the reasons. My real reason stems from the fact that they are super yum and so filling, minus the guilt. What more could a person want?! So to put it simply, you NEED these in your life. I know I do! You’re welcome ❀
