Y’all know by now that I’m a fan of grab-and-go, and easy meal prep. It’s also pretty obvious that I love having my daily chocolate! Therefore… a super-simple recipe for a solid batch of a chocolatey snack only makes sense.
One of my favorite things to combine with chocolate is peanut butter, so that’s what I mixed together to create these Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites! They take less than 30 minutes to make (including setting time), require just a handful of ingredients, and set you up with the perfect ready-to-go snack all week long!
Another great thing about these is that they help keep your blood sugar balanced (something you learn in-depth in my gutTogether program), and have gut-loving ingredients like cacao and flax seeds. Your taste buds AND your digestive system will thank you!
Feel free to experiment with various nut butters – let me know what you try!
