Looking for a tasty energy snack that doesn’t come in a package with a whole bunch of ingredients you don’t want? Then try these tasty bites to keep you energized. These are also great about 2 hours pre-workout to help fuel you up for your endurance activity. Because of the high fat content these will take a while to digest, so they are not suited for right before or after activity, but would be great on camping or hiking trips to keep you going.
