If you are a snackaholic like me you may want to look into the energy balls I have featured below. Energy balls make the perfect snack because they are usually jam packed with fiber and protein. It’s a great mid afternoon snack to boost your energy and cure the munchies without ruining your diet.
I have a major problem with getting so wrapped up in my work that I actually forget to eat. I sit down at my computer in the morning with my coffee and before I know it it’s 1pm in the afternoon and I haven’t eaten a single thing.
Oatmeal balls work really well for me in the morning – when I’m not all the hungry – and in the afternoon when I need a bit of extra energy to finish out my day. If you are like me and forget to eat breakfast in the morning, I highly suggest picking a few of the recipes below and making them.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls
While I personally leave the coconut out of this recipe due to personal preference these energy bites are quite tasty. The chocolate cures a sweet tooth while the peanut butter and oats fill you up.
Apple Cinnamon Cookie Energy Balls
These bites are very refreshing and light. They make for the perfect hot summer day snack.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Balls
Cure your sweet tooth and give yourself a boost of energy. While similar to the first recipe in this post, these energy bites have flaxseed instead of chia seeds which means they may be better for nursing mothers. Flaxseed is said to help breastfeeding mothers to produce more milk.
Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Cups
While not the traditional round no bake energy bites these deserve to be mentioned. They have a light sweetness but filling quality which makes them perfect for snack time energy boosts. The blueberries and bananas mean you are getting a good serving of fruits with these cups.
