Chocolate energy balls use only a few ingredients, take little prep work, and are easy to take on the run—making them the perfect snack.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate No-Bake Energy Bites
Making energy bites is a great way to get ready before a busy week. Bring the container to work and pop a few anytime you start to feel hunger pains. One bite of these and you’ll believe you’re eating brownie batter (the only real cure when you’re feeling hangry).
Mint Chocolate Energy BitesIt’s the time of year when we push aside pumpkin spice everything in favor of mint everything—lattes, desserts, and these energy bites. Oats, flaxseed, and honey make the base for this ball, then the peppermint extract will give you an extra, er, pep in your step.
Chocolate Avocado Truffle Bliss Ball
Avocado makes the creamy texture in this energy ball and provides healthy fats. Dates, nut butter, and chocolate chips round out the bite. Don’t forget to roll it in coconut flakes when they’re done!
No-Bake Chocolate Banana Energy Balls
The banana, chocolate, peanut butter combo will remind you of Chunky Monkey ice cream, but in healthy snack form. Using a natural sweetener and vanilla extract means you can avoid adding refined sugar.
No-Bake Orange Chia Energy Bites
Grabbing a protein bar might be easier, but many of them are packed with sugar and unnatural ingredients. No-bake energy balls provide the benefit of a bar (protein and fiber in a convenient form) plus you know exactly what’s in there and it’s all good stuff! Orange juice and zest will give your energy a boost—no need to mainline espresso.
Cranberry White Chocolate Energy Bites
Having a snack on hand when the 3 p.m.munchies hit is crucial. The mix of tart from the dried cranberries and sweet from the white chocolate chips makes the perfect treat.
Dark Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites
This energy bite tastes like a chocolate-covered cherry and has almonds and cashews as the base. Plus they’re gluten-free, vegan, and Paleo.
hocolate Quinoa Energy Bites
Quinoa and creamy peanut butter give this bite an extra hit of protein to beat the afternoon slump. Flaxseed and chia provide good-for-you fiber while the chocolate-flavored PB gives it flavor.
