Energy-Boosting Peanut Butter Bites

These peanut butter bites taste amazing thanks to the coconut flavor pairing, and they’re an ideal snack.

What does an ideal snack look like? It provides protein and healthy fats to keep you satisfied and give you energy without being a total calorie bomb (since it’s supposed to fill in gaps between meals, not become a meal).

We love that these are automatically portion-controlled, since they’re made in a mini muffin pan and end up being bite-sized.
