Need a healthy afternoon pick-me-up? These Chocolate Brownie N0-Bake Energy Bites are perfect for your kids’ after-school snack time or as a sweet treat for lunch.
It’s like clockwork: around 3 or 4 o’clock every day, my kids start rummaging through the pantry and fridge looking for a snack. And even if I’ve eaten a filling lunch, I usually start to crave a sweet snack in the afternoon, too. I don’t like to eat something heavy to ruin my dinner, though. Enter these Brownie Energy Bites from The Best Homemade Kids’ Snacks on the Planet!
Take a look at how easy these are to make.
These are super simple to make, requiring just a handful of nutritious ingredients. They’re refined sugar-free and grain-free – if you’re allergic to nuts, you can try replacing the cashews with sunflower seeds. While these are perfect for snack time, you can even pack a couple of these in your kids’ lunch boxes as a sweet treat.
Looking for other easy, healthy recipes kids will love? I developed a comprehensive 30-day program which helps families eliminate processed foods and eat whole, nutrient dense meals together.
As a busy mom of 3, it was important to me that the program be easy to use, and picky eater-approved. After trying other 30 and 21 day programs that didn’t quite work for my whole family, I decided to build my own. My family KickStart program includes everything you’ll need to succeed. 30-days of meal plans, easy, kid-approved recipes, and simple swaps for your family’s favorite meals and snacks.
If you have been searching for a way to eat better and feel better with your whole family this can be the solution you’ve been hoping for. Get started with a free trial of the Family KickStart Program here.
