Ok friends…I have a new obsession.  These little Date and Cherry Energy Bites are so easy to make, super easy to grab when you just need a little pick-me-up and are incredibly delicious.  I will be the first to admit that I am bad when it comes to hunger.  The slightest hint of stomach growling and I start dreaming of salty chips or sugar filled cookies.  It’s my weakness.  But with these energy bites hanging around, I can satisfy my sugar craving in 2 bites (or 3 if someones watching).

The beauty of this recipe is that you can customize the coating to your heart’s desire.  Imagine finely ground raw coconut, melted dark chocolate or even a powdered sugar dusting.  These are coated in unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder which amplifies the chocolatey goodness.

If you didn’t already know, Chia seeds are not only great for making terracotta pets, but they are also really good for you.  These little seeds from a flowering plant in the mint family, give you natural energy and are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids.   Add these little seeds to smoothies, toss on salads and definitely use them to make these energy bites.
