I created these energy bombs as a result of contributing to an article about superfoods and cycling endurance. What a yummy surprise! First try was a winner! I hope you will enjoy them, too!
Kids will have a lot of fun helping you in the kitchen and will enjoy bringing their energy bombs to school for a snack. They are high in fiber and antioxidants that will keep you healthy and give you lots of energy. You could even add 1/4 cup chopped almonds to increase protein and add texture to these bombs.
