Almond Espresso Balls

Coffee lovers, meet your new afternoon pick-me-up. Instead of a caffeinated cup of joe, reach for one of these Almond Espresso Energy Balls to snap out of an afternoon slump. 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 health food bar, that’s reason enough to reach for these healthy energy balls on the regular.
