The only hard part is deciding what to eat. These protein no bake chocolate energy bites are one of our solutions. A long time ago my cute friend, Ali posted these awesome energy bites that went completely wild on pinterest. So, we added a little protein powder and a tiny amount of puffed rice (not rice krispies) just for additional texture but it’s totally optional.
