Bites of Chocolate Energy
Since I prepared my Peanut Butter Energy Bites years ago, I’ve been on an energy bite craze. They’ve become my go-to weekly snack, which I prepare on Sunday and store in the refrigerator throughout the week. They’re simple to put together, healthful, and include both peanut butter and chocolate. What’s not to like about this?

These chocolate energy bites are a favourite with youngsters since they taste more like dessert than a snack. They’re fudgey, rich, and just the right amount of sweet. They never fail to fulfill my sweet taste when I’m in the mood for something sweet.

To create delicious chocolate energy bites, all you need is 10 minutes and 7 ingredients!

This is where all of the energy comes from:
Flax seed has around 15 grams of protein in 1/2 cup. Flax seed is also high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and minerals.
Peanut butter is high in fiber and healthy fats. Peanut butter has 7 grams of protein per serving! It’s ideal for a rapid energy boost and to keep you full all day.

Fiber, protein, and minerals abound in old-fashioned oats. Oats, especially old fashioned oats, are a terrific method to get extra nutrients into your diet. They’re also known to lower cholesterol levels.
Chocolate Protein Powder is jam-packed with protein. 20 grams of protein every scoop!

Chocolate Energy Bites Ingredients
You may also use your preferred nut butter in place of the creamy peanut butter. You may also add some crunch by using crunchy peanut butter!
If I have micro chocolate chips on hand, I like to use these instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips. This is also fantastic with dark chocolate pieces!

Old Fashioned Oats: For this recipe, I prefer to use old fashioned oats. Steel cut or quick oats are not recommended for this recipe.

Ground flax seed adds fiber and minerals to the dish. If you don’t have flax seed, use hemp seed, chia seed, or more old fashioned oats instead.

Honey: Gives these energy balls just the right amount of sweetness. Honey can be replaced with agave nectar.

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: Provides the chocolate taste in these chocolate energy bites! I prefer to use dutch process cocoa powder of decent grade. This is our personal fave!
You may also eliminate the chocolate protein powder and replace it with collagen, hemp seeds, chia seeds, or extra crushed flax seed.

Chocolate Energy Bites: How to Make Them
Simply add peanut butter, cocoa powder, honey, oats, chocolate protein powder, chocolate chips, flax seed, and water in a medium mixing dish to produce these chocolate energy balls. To blend, stir everything together.

In a large white mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, chocolate powder, honey, and oats.

Place them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to make rolling easier. Refrigerate for up to a week after rolling into 12 bits. Wet your hands if the energy bites are disintegrating as you roll them. This makes it easier to roll!

In a white dish, combine the ingredients for the protein balls.

Tips for producing energy balls that don’t need to be baked
After the chocolate energy bites have been cooled, try rolling them. It’s a lot simpler to roll them this way. If you’re still having difficulties rolling them, moisten your hands or add another 1 or 2 teaspoons of water to the mixture.
Rather than forming the dough into balls, lay it in a square baking dish lined with parchment paper. Make no-bake energy bars by chilling and cutting!
Use additional unsweetened cocoa powder if you don’t have chocolate protein powder. You could also use hemp seed, chia seed, or additional flax seed instead of protein powder!
Add a dash or two of vanilla extract for added taste!

In these chocolate energy balls, a sprinkle of salt really pulls out the chocolate tastes.
For extra crunch, coat the exterior of the energy bites with crushed nuts or shredded coconut.

Questions that are often asked

How long are they supposed to last?
Energy bites can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks! You may keep them frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container.

How can I reduce my calorie intake?
Some people have expressed concern about the calories in these bites. The peanut butter in this dish provides the majority of the calories. To conserve calories, some readers have used powdered peanut butter mixed with water for some of the peanut butter.

You may also reduce the calories per serving by making the chocolate energy bites smaller and making 12 nibbles instead of 8.
