When you're on the go, it makes a huge difference to have healthy snacks with you. Keeping fresh fruits, veggies, and homemade snacks will keep you from diving into the snack machine or greasy fast food. Making your own real food snacks can help you stay away from hidden preservatives and chemicals and lots of times it will save you money too! Healthy snack bars can be a dollar or more per bar, but buying these 4 ingredients in bulk can be quite cost effective.

You'll love these energy bites, first, because they are chocolate-y and taste like a brownie, and second, because they are packed full of protein from the pecans and peanut butter. They are a perfect pick me up when you are in need of a healthy snack! The next time you head out the door, make sure you bring some of these delicious energy bites!
