Chocolate and oat energy bites

    40 min

    A very versatile recipe that will make about 10 bite size enery-boosting balls. You can use almond butter instead of peanut butter and cacao powder instead of chocolate protein powder. If you find that the mixture is too dry - try wetting your hands as you shape them into balls.

    I've just made this and subbed the honey for coconut oil and the dark choc for chopped dates (purely because I didn't have either in the house) Tastes amazing and makes it vegan! Worth a try!  -  22 Aug 2017


    These are so good! I don't use the chia seeds, but I do use the flax seed. Be sure to grind the flax seed to get the full nutritional value from it. I used a little coffee bean grinder. Great recipe!!  -  05 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I use almond butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I only put in a couple tablespoons of honey. One thing that helped a ton was wetting my hands when forming the balls.  -  28 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
