5-ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Super simple, your run of the mill energy bites!  They are super quick to make, quick to eat, and easy to bring with you when you’re off for a hike, a day on the beach (although, maybe a little sticky for the beach) or are running out the door and just need a snack.  You could spruce them up a bit and add some dried cranberries, cherries, or role them in shredded coconut.  Sub in whatever you like – different nut butters, sesame or hemp seeds rather than chia; add chocolate chips if you  want to go double chocolate!  You go gurl, it’s your wulrd.
