If you’re looking for something sweet but substantive for a post-workout pick-me-up or coffee break at your desk, these almond bites are yummy and healthy and pack a pretty nutritive punch.

Substitute a seed butter for the almond butter to make these snacks safe for school. Add chocolate chips to make these an even sweeter treat.

Good to know:

These almond bites will keep in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
