To keep the sugar and energy levels balanced you should snack a couple of times during the day. You don’t need to eat large portions: an apple here, some nuts there and when you crave something sweet and fulfilling, you try one of these squares!

Here’s the recipe that proves that healthy snacks don’t have to be fruit all the time. There are so many creative alternatives you can choose from!

These squares are deliciously satisfying and they give you that stamina you need.
