Chocolate Coffee Energy Bites

Coffee bites, coffee balls, who knows what you call these … I went with chocolate coffee energy bites, but honestly, can we just call themgood?These suckers combine minimal real food ingredients to make the perfect pre-workout or post-workout snack. The added ground coffee gives just the perfect pick-me-up that I know and love!

I first tried coffee crunch energy bites at Lifetime. I finished a workout and headed to the cafe before heading out to work. I didn’t have a snack and happened upon them. I LOVED them. Filling and a great pick-me-up. But they were a little sweet for my liking, and they were $2.99 for two of them. I knew I could make them cheaper. So I did! They are super easy to make and store wonderfully. Here’s what you need.
