Allow me to introduce you to the most decadent energy bite I have ever made! Chocolate packed brownie batter bites are my favorite way to recharge after a workout or crush a persistent sweet tooth!
The base of this bite is an old Whole30 chocolate cake recipe I had tinkered with back in October. The cake failed miserably, but removing a few ingredients made a fudgy delicious energy bite!!
The process to make these is super simple. Stir, roll and refrigerate! I like to roll my bites in mini m&m's for fun, but crushed walnuts, coconut flakes or crushed graham crackers make excellent coatings as well!
Be sure to keep these refrigerated as they don't hold up well to heat!
