Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Energy Bites

So I’ve decided that from now on I’m going to be fearless!

So many times I just get in my own head and instead of being that outgoing fun person I normally am I close up and wonder … “will they like me?”

“What if they don’t like?”

Seriously of course they will like me.

Sometimes I think of that one famous Stuart Smalley quote. The one where he is sitting down in a chair looking at himself in the mirror and says “I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it people like me!”

I know normally people make fun of that quote but have you ever really thought about the words. The quote is so simple but sometimes I really do think we need to repeat that to ourselves!  So we start believing it and stop beating ourselves up.

So this weekend as I’m in Kansas City, I’m gonna be fearless. I’m gonna walk up to bloggers I adore, hang out with some amazing friends, and talk to some brands that I want to work with. And thats that! 🙂

Ok, now that I’ve prepped you to believe in yourself and prepped myself, how about I leave you with an amazing energy packed recipe!

Sound good!? I thought so.

Food always makes me happy, especially this kind.. because it has CHOCOLATE! Woot woot… and major happy dance!

Ever since I made those No Bake Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites  a couple months ago I have been hooked! They are packed with tons of fiber from ground flax seed, oatmeal, and chia seeds. So one of these bad boys will probably fill you up, at least it does me.

Lately, I have been experimenting with different flavors of Energy Bites and I finally nailed one I liked!

I’m sure the main reason I like this one is because of the chocolate. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolate?

Crazy people thats who!

Tips for Making These Energy Bites

The almond butter in these bites acts as a binder to hold everything together.

Although I will warn you, it gets a little sticky. I found what helped me as I was making these bites is to have a bowl of water near by. When the oatmeal and such starting sticking to my hands I would wash them off, make sure my hands were wet {instead of drying them off}, and start rolling balls again. For whatever reason the wetness helped things not stick to my hand.

I made these last week and they were gone in 3 days {ya’ll there were 17 balls so we devoured these bites in no time}! I had to make another batch of these No Bake Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter Energy Bites before I left so that my boys were taken care of while I was gone!

I’m sure they will disappear in no time and of course I won’t get any. But good thing about this recipe is it takes like 5 minutes to put together and I have all the ingredients already.

I see a third batch of these coming soon to the JHE Casa!

    Hi, while looking at the recipe for Dark Chocolate Coconut energy bites, I saw a title for Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Bites though I can’t see a recipe for them. Do you have one? Either way, I’m going to make the coconut bites!
    Thanks for all your recipes!

      Hi Lara, this is the Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter Energy Bites recipe. I sometimes have to shorten the main title to fit – so it doesn’t have the full description.

    I know this recipe is several years old and I’ve been making them for friends and family for a long time! I keep them in the freezer and pull out a few at a time for a quick breakfast or snack. They taste like cookie dough! Don’t let coconut scare you off – I don’t like coconut normally and I can’t tell it’s in these.

    Not vegan or vegetarian or anything but I try to eat well. Always wanted to try some kind of energy balls and I’m glad I picked these. So good!!! My boyfriend doesn’t like anything healthy but loved these. Great alternative to cookies!

    These were really great! I actually never tried chia or flax seeds prior to this recipe. I know I’m a little late… ok a lot late! Lol but it was so good. I did have to improvise a little because I doubled the recipe and didn’t have enough honey so I used a tiny bit of pancake syrup to make it just a little bit more moist and I threw some semi-sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips in there to lure my kids in lol my daughter who hates coconut flakes doesn’t mind it in here. In fact she said it’s really good!!! And I’m happy I can get som omega 3 from these energy balls. My son won’t even try it lol but I’m a “glass half full” kinda gal. So in my eyes it worked 50% lol
    Thanks so much for this recipe!!! I’m going to adventure through your recipe blogs more and I’m sure I will find more deliciousness to add to our home.
    Take care,
