*Optional: mix in semisweet chocolate chips, cacao nibs, chia seeds, raisins, dried berries, cinnamon or finely chopped nuts for extra yumminess!
*Optional: roll energy bites in a handful of unsweetened coconut and you will not regret it. If you’d prefer rolling in a handful of raw cacao nibs, all power to ya!
*Chill the mixture for 1-2 hours first if you have trouble getting the energy balls to hold together.
