Throwback Thursday – Protein Energy Bites

I picked these energy bites for Throwback Thursday because they are one of my favorite snacks.  They are so easy to make and are the perfect healthy snack!  I tried using them as fuel on my long runs but they are really too good for that….I wanted to stop and enjoy them and keep eating….not a good idea when you are running!  Although they did work perfectly as a running fuel,  I found them to be much better for an afternoon pick-me-up at the office or even for a sweet dessert.
