Energy bites are a convenient and efficient way to fuel up on the go, before a workout, or grab as a sweet snack on your way out of the house.  Packed with fiber, healthy fats, and healthy carbs, these little bites provide long-lasting energy.  As an added bonus, cinnamon promotes the regulation of blood sugar.  Inspired by the snickerdoodle cookie, these energy bites will satisfy any dessert craving!
