These almond butter and chocolate chip bites are so delicious and easy. They only take 10 minutes to make and are the perfect snack!
Again, I don’t know if you have noticed but I am in love with energy bites! I love how simple they are but also how easy they are to make and eat! These bites only have a few ingredients and take no time at all to whip up!
The main ingredient in these bites is almond butter, however the chocolate chips add a delicious chocolaty surprise and a beautiful texture to the bites!
Like most energy bites, dates are one of the key ingredients. I love using dates as they add a great natural sweetness but also help create a sticky base for the balls. Oats in these bites also help bind everything together. I love using oats as they are a slow releaser of energy and therefore keep you full for much longer!
You also want to make sure with these bites that you don’t add too much water. The mixture may look quite crumbly at first but only add about teaspoon at time. Because the almond butter can be quite liquid-y from the natural oils if you add too much water then the balls will be too sticky.
I love taking these bites in my bag and on the go. They are a great quick snack for when you are feeling hungry and are so easy to eat. You could also take these to the gym with you. Eat them after to refuel you or even snack on them before to provide you with some great energy!
