Tasty Peanut Butter, Chocolatey, Coconutty Treats

I recently started a new job and I am out and about in the city everyday.  This can pose a problem for eating at traditional times, which can sometimes be rough for me.  I have a confession to make, if I don’t eat regularly I turn into a grumpy six year old.  If I miss a meal because I’m on the go, I suddenly find myself on the verge of a temper tantrum.  It is a serious problem, but after many years, I have found that the solution is always having a snack on hand.  This embarrassing fact about me and my new job have inspired me to experiment with delicious solutions to this problem.

For today’s post I made scrumptious peanut butter, coconut, chocolate energy balls.  This recipe is super easy and perfect for healthy (ish) snacking!
