Dark Chocolate Energy Bites

I told myself I wouldn’t do this. I told myself to stay on top of it throughout the semester so I wouldn’t have to neglect the blog in favor of cramming a semester’s worth of material into my brain in between cups of coffee.

Since I haven’t posted in two days, I’ll let you be the judge of how successful that one was. Oops.

So, let’s keep it short. Last semester I brought you brainola, my low calorie version of granola that’s packed with healthy fats, whole grains, protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Good for the brain and body. This semester, I’m bringing you dark chocolate energy bites. These are a great alternative to the yucky processed snack bars you might have hiding in your backpack now.

Plus, you won’t be that annoying kid fiddling with their wrappers on the silent floor of the library. Everyone hates that kid.

  1. I have heard wonderful things about pb2, but I haven’t gotten around to buying any yet. Could I substitute chocolate protein powder for the pb2?

  2. These look absolutely amazing! I’m SO glad I ran across your blog, I can’t wait to have a look around your other recipes because they all look pretty promising!

    I’m currently eating no sugar, so these will have to wait another week but will definitely give them a try soon!

    Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe :)
