Espresso Peanut Butter Energy Bites

“All my bags are packed and I’m ready to go~”

Which is actually really weird because I’m usually a last-minute packer. Whenever we travel, Kyle would be packed a week before we leave, and I’d be like “ehhh… I got time.” And I’ll pack the day before we leave.

This time, surprisingly, it’s the other way round. And of course, seeing me packed, Kyle is freaking out! :p

I’m so excited that we get to travel AND come back together, leaving no one behind. Also this time, I’m bring some snacks with us!

Espresso peanut butter energy bites! It’s like everything that I love (almost) pressed into one ball! And you all know how much I love my maca, I had to add some maca for more energy boost!

Why I love this energy bites so much, and I hope you do too? Because they’re…
Chewy
Caffeinated (hello!)
Peanut buttery
Loaded with protein
Sweet & salty
And of course, healthy!
Perfect travel snack.
