Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Bites

Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Bites

Are healthy peanut butter cups a thing?  Probably not, but these energy balls come really close.  I mean, memories of Reese’s instantly popped in my mind when I tried the first bite.

With only 5 simple ingredients, they come together in a flash.  It’s almost too good to be true…

  • They’re super easy and fun to make
  • They’re healthy – minus the chocolate I guess, but you need those antioxidants, right?
  • And they taste like dessert. It honestly blows my mind.

Overall, they’re perfect little energy boosters any peanut butter chocolate fanatic will love.  Let’s just say I certainly belong to that club!

Prep Time5 minsTotal Time5 mins

Ingredients

 1 cup dates
 ½ cup rolled oats
 2 tbsp peanut butter
 1 tbsp chia seeds
 1 tsp water, more or less depending on consistency
 about 1/2 cups chocolate chips, melted

Directions

1

Pulse dates in a food processor until no large pieces remain. Note: they may form a ball, and this is fine.

2

Add the rest of the ingredients except water and pulse until evenly combined.

3

Gradually add water, if necessary. You want to reach a consistency that holds together well, but is not overly moist.

4

Roll mixture into balls and flatten slightly to form disks, about 1.5 inches in diameter.

5

Melt chocolate chips and dip in energy bites. Place in a container lined with parchment paper.
Use remaining chocolate to drizzle on top (tip: cut a small slit in a plastic bag and squeeze melted chocolate through). Refrigerate to let chocolate harden, about 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
