Lately, I’ve been noticing just how many packaged foods that I considered “healthy,” actually contain a good amount of added refined sugars. As busy moms, we don’t always have time to prepare our snacks from scratch. That’s why I was so pleasantly surprised to come upon this awesome packaged mix for energy bites on my recent visit to ThriveMarket.com.
Filled with Nutritional Value
Containing 7 grams of plant protein, 3 grams of fiber, merely 1 gram of added sugar (unrefined) AND at only 80 calories per serving; Creation Nation’s energy bites make for a filling and energy-boosting low cal treat.
Tastes Great, Too!
Oftentimes, I find that healthy snacks such as these can be dull and lacking in flavor, but not the case with these treats. If you like a rich, chocolate flavor with hints of coconut, nuts and sweetness; you’ll fall in love, too!
Fits Most Diets
On top of all that, the bites are paleo, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free! So almost anyone can enjoy them, regardless of their diet restrictions.
Multiple Ways to Prepare
The original recipe calls for liquid (water,milk,coffee,juice,applesauce,mashed banana, or avocado), nut/coconut butter, agave/maple/honey and the packaged powder mix. But for those who are sticking to a keto diet, you can simply leave the sweetener out. There’s also an extra sweet version made just by leaving the butter out and adjusting the remaining ingredients slightly.
Or maybe you are looking for a protein-filled breakfast alternative. In that case, all you need is the mix, nut butter and coffee or mashed banana. So many options
The bag contents can create up to 24 individual bites that you are able to store in the fridge for up to two weeks, or freeze for up to one month
