Today, we are making Healthy No-Bake Energy Bites, 2 ways!! The first version is an Apple Pie Energy Bite that will keep you fueled and energized the entire day. The second energy bite is a Fudgy Chocolate Energy Bite. These chocolate bites are amazing!

Everyone is getting ready to head back to school (not me, yet!), buying school supplies and uniforms, but we can’t forget about one of the most important tasks at hand: making healthy snacks for school!

It is so easy to fall into the habit of buying processed granola bars and other snacks because they are convenient, but I promise, making your own snacks is easy! If you follow my simple steps to making these Healthy No-Bake Energy Bites, you are sure to feel energized and fueled during your day. There are only six ingredients in each of these no-bake energy bites, so you have no excuse to say that you don’t have the time.

If you still don’t feel motivated to make your own snacks for school, at least try making them this summer when you may have “all the time in the world.”

Speaking of having “all the time in the world”, I have been so crazy-busy this week, and I feel like time is totally against me.

There are tons of ideas and things I want to cross off my to-do list every day, but there never seems to be enough time to accomplish everything. I am trying to work on my current, attainable goals while also thinking long term and beginning those daunting projects. It is difficult to juggle all the jobs I’ve assigned myself to do.

Anyone else feeling that way? Is anyone else a blogger/Youtuber/entrepreneur who feels that what you do is never enough?

Despite my stress, it has been really nice being able to eat all the food I made for the blog this week; especially, these energy bites!

As I write this article at 1:30 am, I am eating the Fudgy Chocolate energy bites. They are addicting! It’s hard not to eat the entire batch!

Getting back to my dilemma of not having enough time to accomplish my goals… I’m going to share with you one of the projects I am working on, that I’ve barely had any time to work on yet, this week.

I am in the midst of creating a course that will teach bloggers or aspiring Youtubers/bloggers/anyone else how to create excellent online video. You see, the world has been obsessed with online video for the past decade. At first, people were just making online videos with their cameras to share videos with family and friends, and then it evolved into something much more; something much greater.

People, like myself, are using these video sharing platforms to create quality content while sharing a skill.

I feel that I have come close to perfecting the way I film my online video. Of course, there is always room for improvement, but I do believe that I have something to offer, to teach, from what I’ve learned along the way.

My goal is for this course to teach people how to make amazing, quality, video that can be shared on multiple social media platforms. That is the main gist of this new project I am working on and I hope the course will be launched in November or December!

Enough of my future goals have been spilled, so now let’s talk about Healthy No Bake Energy Bites!

These energy bites are packed with healthy ingredients such as almonds, dates, walnuts, etc.

Another awesome part about these energy bites is that they can all be made in a food processor, and not a new-fancy type. I have a super old (probably over 10-year-old) Cuisinart blender, that I sometimes yell at for not grinding or pureeing foods enough, but in this case, it works!

All the ingredients in this recipe need to be ground, but not to the point where they turn into a full-on nut butter. You’ll be able to feel some tiny pieces of nuts in the energy bites, and that’s ok! Having different textures and consistencies gives the energy bites more character and makes them even more delicious.

I decided to share my Fudgy Chocolate Energy Bite first because let’s be real here, who doesn’t love chocolate?!?!

Actually, I have known a few people that hate chocolate. I never understood it, but if you’re not a chocolate lover, no worries! I’ve got the most amazing Apple Pie Energy Bite recipe for you!

Apple Pie is one of those nostalgic desserts that everyone can remember eating at a family dinner, probably Thanksgiving or the Fourth of July (if you live in America.) There is usually always a happy memory attached to food that you love, and somehow Apple Pie is one of those foods for many people. Although my Apple Pie Energy Bites are not creamy or baked, they do envelop those beloved, spiced flavors of a traditional apple pie.

I hope you all give these recipes a try and let me know in the comments which Energy Bite you make for school this year!

I encourage you to make healthy snacks and lunches for school this year! Let’s start this back to school season off energized and motivated!
