Healthy snacks have been on repeat at our house.I can only eat so many apples and grapes in a day. I need something filling that will keep me going for longer.

And preferably a snack that will keep me full for several hours. Myself and others have been making these no-bake energy bites and my oatmeal raisin energy bites. And while those are crazy good and highly addicting, I needed something a bit different… something with chocolate!

So here we are with a healthy Almond Joy energy bite recipe.

How to make Almond Joy Bites

It’s almost too easy, but all you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix them together.

Next, use a cookie scoop to portion the mixture into bite size servings. Use your palms to roll the mixture into round balls.

How to store them

Place the balls in an airtight container or ziplock bag and store them in the fridge or freezer.

If kept in an airtight container these protein balls will keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or up to 3 months in the freezer.
