Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

By: Stay Fit Stevi

You know before a workout, when you can’t eat a full meal but need a little something to hold you over? We’ve got just the thing! While many protein bars or snacks have added sugars or unknown ingredients, homemade energy bites are a great way to know what you’re putting into your body.

These pumpkin pie energy bites are the perfect fall pre-workout treat, afternoon snack or cure for a sweet tooth! Be sure to refuel with a healthy meal and lots of water after your class.
