Nutella Chia Energy Bites – My all time favourite energy snack. These bliss balls only take 5min to make and are packed with protein and gluten-free.
Energy Bites of all kinds, whether it be peanut butter or chocolate are my go to post workout or pick me up snack. I often hit a bit of a slump in the afternoons where I feel tired, unmotivated and super unproductive. Most of the time coffee doesn’t even do the job to pick me back up, but man can energy bites give you a boost. I think it’s the mixture of a little sweetness, some protein and those chewy oats that do the job. Not only does it give you an energy boost but it also helps with those sugar cravings. In fact I snack on them whenever I feel like eating chocolate or candy. And I immediately feel satisfied.
These Nutella Chia Energy Bites cure those mid-afternoon sugar cravings more than anything, because well…they have NUTELLA! OMG I could eat Nutella straight out of the jar, although that probably wouldn’t exactly be the healthiest thing. But mix a little oats and some chia seeds with your Nutella and you have the perfect sugar craving buster. These are a little sweet, a little crunchy and a whole lotta chewy. Mmmm…. In fact I think I might just have one right now.
Best part. They take only about 5min to make and you can keep them in a Tupperware in your fridge for whenever the snack fever hits you. To make them, all you do is combine the Nutella, chia seeds, oats and honey/maple syrup in a bowl. Give it a good mix to ensure everything is properly combined. Then roll the mixture into balls (I made pretty big ones) and then pop them into a container and into the fridge. That’s it guys! There’s nothing more to it. Amazing right?
