Berry Macaroon Energy Bites

Monday is here and the deal stands…

A brand new recipe!

When thinking about how to incorporate nuts or trail mix into a client’s diet in a creative way, there tends to be a roadblock for me. Not everyone will eat plain nuts, or even trail mix… so how else can I get the omega-3, nutrient dense and salty snack into an athlete’s body?

Meet energy bites. There are SO many varieties. They are delicious no matter which one you choose. They are the perfect snack based on nutritional qualities.

I took one of my very favorite energy bite recipes and tweaked it to give room for using the Sahale Snacks Berry Macaroon Almond mix because it is addictive and it will most definitely be a brand new way for many people to get in their omegas {woohoo!}.

This recipe is gluten-free (check your oats) & dairy-free.

  1. Hi Christina! I’m glad your back in action! :)

    These look super simple and tasty. I still haven’t made energy bites myself but I’m thinking I need to get on that. Also, what recipe plugin do you use? I like the simplicity of your setup. Beautiful!
