Have you all jumped on the Energy Bites bandwagon?! It’s totally a thing now. These little bite-sized morsels are filled with lovely flavors and are so quick & easy to prepare, you’ll wonder how you lived without them until now! Trust me, they are that good! The recipe I’m sharing with you all today for the Chocolate Almond Energy Bites is the first variety I’ve ever made.

However, since then, I’ve made a number of other types. I simply can’t get enough of them! You will feel the same way, I’m sure!

Check them out! Aren’t they glorious?!

  1. This sounds like a great way to start your day! I would definitely try to make these and snag a couple on the way out the door in the morning and see if it improves the commute.

  2. Wow! These sound delicious. I’ve been more cautious to my snacks lately. I’ve noticed that some snacks give a quick boost…and then a big crash after so I bet this would be a perfect new snack to grab!

      I love these because they definitely provide a more steady source of energy. It’s also great that they’re so portable! You can just grab a few to go in a small plastic baggie!

  3. Energy bites are all the rage these days but sadly I’ve never tried one. Yours look great, I just may have to make them for myself :)

  4. I haven’t made anything like this before!! I’ve been wanting to, but haven’t had a great recipe yet. I’ll try these :)

  5. These look so good! I haven’t made anything like this before, but I’ve been wanting to. I’ll try out this recipe!

  6. I love dried dates, chocolate and almonds, so I’m sure I would love these energy balls. Looks like a great snack or breakfast.

  7. I really want to try these! I make ones that have peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oatmeal in them but these sounds great too!

  8. This sounds really good and like a great start to the day. I so need the energy on my boys school days I have to get up before the sun is even out!

  9. I pinned this! We are in a snack bind. We need things that are healthy and energizing because we are ALWAYS on the go!

  10. I’ve seen a few different energy ball recipes, but this is the first that I have seen a Chocolate Almond one. I need to add this in my recipe box for November snacks.

  11. Thanks for sharing! I love energy bars but they are so expensive. These sound just as tasty and maybe less expensive also. I can’t wait to try them.

  12. These energy balls sound amazing! I love finding new ways to get protein in me.

  13. The chocolate almond energy balls looks so delicious and would be a perfect snack. The chocolate skewers looks delicious too.

  14. These sound like a delicious and super charged snack! I don’t think I’d have problems getting my kids to try these!

  15. As I shove cookies and an oatmeal pie in my mouth at 8am…I really need to fill my house with healthier snacks.

    • EngineerMommy

      Haha, an oatmeal pie sounds pretty good right about now!

      But these energy balls are totally delicious and pretty healthy!! :)
