I’m fond of any sweet treat that is no bake. I love how quickly they come together and how well they store in the fridge just waiting for that moment when you need a sweet little pick me up treat.
These espresso chocolate hazelnut energy bites pack a nutritious punch
These delicious espresso chocolate hazelnut energy bites are not only easy to make, they have a wonderful flavor that will make it hard to just eat one! But even if you have an extra one (or two), you won’t need to worry.
They are full of healthy goodness.
Note: I received both the chocolate hazelnut butter and grainless granola bars in exchange for using them in this recipe. All opinions are mine.
Just check out these ingredients! I used pure maple syrup, organic honey, unsweetened coconut flakes, dairy free mini chocolate chips and chocolate hazelnut butter.
And Espresso? Why that comes some energy granola bars with a shot of granola. Combine everything together, and you have a bite made in heaven.
My husband tasted the granola bars first since he is the coffee drinker in our house. He adores them.
Me…not so much of a coffee drinker (as in I don’t even like the smell of it) and I LOVED the taste of these bites. Just a tiny hint of espresso and so much deliciousness in one tiny bite!
I could not believe how quick and easy these were to make. Everything goes into one bowl and the ingredients get mixed with your hands.
Take out tablespoons of the mixture and roll it into balls and place on a silicone mat that is place on a baking sheet. Pop them into the fridge for about 1 hour to set.
Voila! These espresso chocolate hazelnut biters are perfect little balls of healthy goodness that will satisfy your sweet tooth, your hunger and your eyes too! They have the best of all things energy.
Protein, sweetness, crunch and such a delicious taste.
This one is a keeper, folks. You will make them again and again, which is great, seeing as how easy they are to make!
