The added ground coffee gives just the perfect pick-me-up that I know and love!
I first tried coffee crunch energy bites at Lifetime. I finished a workout and headed to the cafe before heading out to work. I didn’t have a snack and happened upon them. I LOVED them. Filling and a great pick-me-up. But they were a little sweet for my liking, and they were $2.99 for two of them. I knew I could make them cheaper. So I did! They are super easy to make and store wonderfully. Here’s what you need.
