When your kid needs an healthy boost of energy, these Chocolate Bites are a wonderful idea!
No bake, no refined sugars, no gluten….loaded with more than 10 healthy and nutritious ingredients, without mentioning the lovely chocolate taste! It’s a win-win situation: kids love them + moms love them.
The procedure is so simple that your older kids can make them by themselves 😉 I like to roll half of the bites in coconut flakes for my Luca (he likes a more crunchy texture) and leave the other half plain (Alex likes a more smooth and creamy surface).
You can prepare a nice batch, store it in an air tight container and keep the Energy Bites in the refrigerator for up to 1 months…but I’m sure they will be gone way before that 😉
Another plus of this recipe: you can size the bites following your kid’s appetite. Small or giant balls, you decide!
The bites are naturally sweetened by dried fruit: I used super soft and sweet dried apricots from the Farmer’s Market, but you can switch with any dried fruit you like.
I also used 70% cocoa chocolate chips as I like strong dark chocolate, but you can pick up the cocoa % you like.
This is a super toddler friendly recipe.
