Cocoa Almond Energy Bites

These are made just like my Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites, except these taste like brownies. 🙂 Definitely a great natural sweet treat alternative with all natural ingredients and sugars from fruit and dates.

Chocolateeee. You really can’t go wrong.

These are addicting, trust me. Just take them to work and hand them out because otherwise you’ll eat the whole bowl.
