Dark Chocolate Banana Energy Bites

Hello, hello! Welcome back to another blog post and another recipe 😊

This past weekend, I whipped up simple and delicious energy bites and thought I would share the recipe with all of you! I’m in full-on wedding prep mode now that we are only about 5 months out, so I decided to make an energy bite recipe that is more carbs and less fat, just because that is currently fitting into my fitness/eating routine a little easier. If you like chocolate and bananas (and I mean, who doesn’t?), then this recipe is for you!

 

 

Dark Chocolate Banana Energy Bites

Ingredients

1 cup old fashioned oats

1 medium very ripe banana

3 oz pitted dates (approx. 12 dates)

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp dark cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips

Cinnamon to taste

Salt to taste

 

Directions

Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips and coconut) in a food processor or blender and mix to until it forms a paste.

Scoop into a bowl and add chocolate chips/coconut.

Mix and form into 12 balls with your hands.

Refrigerate and enjoy 😊

** These do have a “wet/sticky” consistency, so you may want to add more oats!
