Spied it, Tried it: Chocolate Energy Bites

It’s an understatement that I indulge my sweet tooth from time to time, but otherwise I’m not typically a huge snacker. However, pregnancy has shaken up my typical eating habits, and now I’m not sure I could get through the day without a mid-morning and a late-afternoon snack. (Not to mention a post-Jona-bedtime bowl of ice cream, but we won’t talk about that one.)

Given my ice cream obsession, I try to keep the rest of my snacks relatively healthy. Fruit, cheese (shout-out to goat cheese, my fave!), and yogurt are all part of my regular rotation. However, sometimes I just need something sweet and chocolatey. I love the idea of “energy bites” because they seem to be the best of both worlds.

I have several different versions on my “Healthy Snacking” Pinterest board, and honestly I’d like to work my way through all of them.

This time around, I tried these ultra-chocolatey ones from Everyday Reading. They may not be the healthiest of the bunch, but they’re much better for me than a plate full of Oreos, that’s for sure. And to me they’re just as delicious, which is saying something. I've made them twice in the last month!

These chocolate energy bites are delicious, easy to make, and a lot healthier (and more filling) than cookies or sugary cereal. Keep reading for this recipe plus 3 more. | www.shealennon.com
