Being a mom of two wonderful kids, morning time sometimes is a bit overwhelming for me. Preparing breakfast, doing morning chores, driving the kids to school, etc. And I also want to make a healthy breakfast for my family. After some research, this recipe is what I come up with. I was a bit worried that my family won’t like them, but to my surprise, they loved it.


Fork one and dip it in honey if you like it sweet, or sprinkle some cocoa powder to give it that chocolate taste. These energy bites are also easy to carry around. If you have a busy morning, just put some in a plastic bag, and you can snack on them whenever you like.
