Chocolate and Peanut Butter Energy Bites

So I’m totally a sucker for anything chocolate and peanut butter. I firmly believe that these two ingredients were meant to be one, and can make the most simplest recipe, the absolute best.

But if you’re trying to make healthy snacks for yourself or for your family, with using things like gluten free oats, (oatmeal) flaxseed and honey, instead of sugar and flour… then chocolate and peanut butter are fantastic ingredients to help disguise the “healthy”.

Energy Bites Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter

Mix all of your ingredients together, then using your hand, form the energy bites in to round balls. You’ll then place them on wax paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before eating.

Then, store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator or freezer so you all can grab one as you wish!

Way better than reaching for a chocolate chip cookie, right?
