Do you like Mondays? I know I don’t. When I think of Mondays, I think of a Disneyesque character (a villain, obviously) cackling evilly and shrilly screaming: “Monday mornings are eeeearly mornings! Monday mornings are eeeearly mornings!”

Suffice it to say, the alarm clock that goes off every Monday is probably one of the most unwelcome sounds. Ever. And while many would resort to drinking copious amounts of coffee, for me that’s a no-no. Coffee and I, we’re not the best of friends. The caffeine tends to kick in with a ridiculous delay, sending my heart racing and my hands shaking – without really making me feel any more awake.

So coffee’s out.

What, then, is the solution to the dreaded Monday mornings? Well, how about these wonderful wake-me-up matcha no bake energy bites? While matcha only contains about half the amount of caffeine found in coffee, it still packs a wake up punch, accompanied with that lovely green tea flavour.

Now, if you dislike green tea, these no bake energy bites might not be for you – but you could leave out the matcha and still get all of the healthy fats from the almonds and coconut oil, as well as the vitamins and minerals from the supergreens and the spirulina.

Yep, these no bake energy bites have it all – the carbohydrates and (unrefined) sugars to give you that burst of energy (which we all need in the morning), the protein from spirulina, supergreens and almonds, and the healthy fats. The white chocolate drizzle is optional, but – hey – we need all the help we can get on those groggy early mornings. Am I right, or am I right?
