These No-Bake Chocolate Energy Balls are packed with oatmeal, chia seeds, flax seeds and creamy peanut butter. The perfect healthy snack that tastes like a fudgy treat!
I would like to confess to everyone reading this that I, Valerie Veronica, am a chocoholic. Sounds corny but it’s true. I’m addicted to chocolate! Good dark chocolate. Just give me a dark sea salt chocolate bar or fudgy dark chocolate brownies with some coffee or wine and I’m a happy camper.
I’d love to say I indulge in luscious chocolate every so often but I’d be lying. I have at least 1-2 square pieces of chocolate close to everyday. Antioxidants right? A piece of 72%+ cocao dark chocolate either with sea salt, cocoa nibs, almonds or plain, that’s my jam 🙌
But some days my chocolate cravings go a little nuts. I start by eating one square and then somehow am close to finishing the bar. Last night, for example, I started craving chocolate around 9:30pm and ended up eating half a bar by 10:30pm. And I’m pretty sure the only reason I stopped when I did was because I fell asleep. Wah wah…Sometimes I just want to stuff my face with chocolate. Chocolate party woohoooo 💃 But seeing as the hubs could not handle me after that much sugar and I don’t want to go bankrupt buying dark chocolate bars, I have a little trick to offset my craving. No-Bake Chocolate Energy Balls
Chocolaty, filling and naturally sweetened, these No-Bake Chocolate Energy Balls crush my chocolate cravings on the “OMG I need CHOCOLATE NOW” nights. Similar to my Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls, these little snacks are packed with protein from the nut butter, omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds and flax meal, and soluble fiber from the oats. So basically they taste like a naughty treat but are actually healthy little protein chocolate bites.
So if you are a chocolate addict like me and need a little help fighting the cravings, try these No-Bake Chocolate Energy Balls. Only problem is that they are kind of addicting too.
