The Christmas cookies and goodies have been eaten, and we are all starting to plan and set goals for next year. This can take lots of mental energy and can work up quite an appetite! Instead of reaching for any lingering sugar packed goodie, try one of my chocolate chip cookie energy bites! I love them because they help me feel like I am getting a treat but it also gives a little boost of energy as well. You can use whatever nut butter you would like, I use peanut butter in my recipe but you could easily use almond or cashew butter.
I eat them after a workout, or any time I need a quick pick me up! Enjoy!
