Chocolate Energy Bites
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed
  • cup dried apricots finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ cup chopped dark chocolate
  • dash of salt
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • unsweetened shredded coconut for coating
  1. Chop the apricots and the chocolate. Set apart.
  2. In a big bowl mix together the dry ingredients: oats, cocoa powder, 1/3 cup coconut, ground flaxseed, apricots, chia seeds, chocolate and salt.
  3. In another small bowl place the almond butter, honey and coconut oil. Warm up in the microwave: 40 seconds total, stirring after every 20 sec. until completely melted and combined. Add in vanilla.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and stir well.
  5. With your hands create small balls and coat half of them with the remaining coconut.
  6. My Alex doesn’t like coconut flakes, so I fairly not coated 50% of the energy balls ;-)
  7. Place in the refrigerator for 30 min to get firm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 month…but I’m sure they will be gone in less than 1 week!!!
