My latest video features some tasty No-Bake Almond Butter Chickpea Energy Bites — check out the video below as I make this no-bake recipe step-by-step.

Can we talk about snacks?

A lot of commercially made snacks just aren’t that healthy. I basically wouldn’t recommend any of them for every day use. Sure, some snacks are better than others — and these are the ones I recommend for packing on an airplane or road trip — but for the most part, homemade wins.

Here’s the problem with most snack foods: they may be marketed as “whole grain” or “high protein,” but when you start looking at the ingredient list, you might see a whole lot of ingredients that are either unrecognizable as real food, or are downright unhealthy (additives, gums, starches, “natural” flavorings, high tech sweeteners, etc.).

So here’s what I recommend: try making these energy bites. They’re really simple — no baking required! And they’re super family-friendly — I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate chips and almond butter?

These No-Bake Almond Butter Chickpea Energy Bites are also highly portable — tuck them into your kiddos’ lunch boxes, or put a couple in your gym bag for a post-workout snack.
