Almond Espresso Energy Balls

Coffee lovers, meet your new afternoon pick-me-up: Almond Espresso Energy Balls

Instead of downing another cup of coffee (and whatever amount of milk and sugar you add to it), eat one of these all-natural espresso-flavored treats to boost your energy with protein and complex carbohydrates.

If you haven’t tried meal prepping some healthy snacks, you should consider doing so for a few very good reasons.

Making sure you have a good-for-you snack at the ready will help you avoid reaching for the less healthy options that are usually found in a vending machine, cafeteria, or convenience store.

These bite-sized beauties are free from refined sugars and preservatives and have less than half the sugar of the average nut-based snack bar.
