Almond Joy Energy Balls

A chewy chocolaty bite sized snack that gives you energy for hours!

Ever get in that mid day slump?

Yeahh, me too.

Usually by 2 pm you can find me by the nearest coffee maker brewing my 2nd or 3rd cup of coffee. Not my best habit, I know.

But lately I’ve been really into making a quick snack and enjoying it with my afternoon cup of coffee.

This week I came up with THESE and I think it might be the best thing I’ve ever done.
