About two months ago I posted these energy bites here. Since then I’ve probably made them eight times because me and my kids love them so much. Today I’ve decided to mix things up a bit and make a decadent chocolate version. Now I’m sure I will be rotating the other kind out with these at least half of the time. They are amazing!

These remind me a lot of a no-bake cookies, but these are far healthier. It might have something to do with the fact that they don’t have 2 cups of sugar and a stick of butter. So, when you get that chocolate or dessert craving, just pop of few of these and you’re craving will most definitely be satisfied and you won’t have to feel guilty about it. These are also perfect just for a midday snack or even a quick on the go breakfast.

If you haven’t ever made energy bites yet, what better time than now? I mean these are chocolate, how could you not want them :)?

Just try not to get as addicted as I am. Enjoy!
