Serves 6 (serving size: two energy bites) 

Packed with fresh apples, dried cranberries, nuts, and warm spices, these bite-sized snacks are full of protein and boost your energy to get you through the day. Energy bites are so easy to make at home because there is no cooking involved and you can add any ingredients you like. Skip the hassle and calories of an apple pie and keep these as a quick snack in your fridge for up to four days. If you want to take these bites on the go, use dried apples instead of fresh but to make up for the lost moisture you may need to add more nut butter and/or honey.

Step 3

Step 4
