Not only are they amazingly delicious, they are also super quick and easy to make and have only five simple healthy ingredients. That’s right. Five. Count them (1) oatmeal (2) shredded coconut (3) chia seeds (4) honey and (5) Nutella. Yup, five! Mix them together and roll them into little balls of joy.
Ok you want in on a little secret of ours? We do not really roll these things. Nope. We apologize if you feel completely betrayed but we cheat. Who seriously wants to get their hands all sticky and gooey and covered in honey while rolling out 24 1-inch balls of yumminess? Yea we didn’t think so.
Especially when you get text message right in the middle of trying to roll up a batch of these. Of course you cannot wait just five little minutes to read the message, so then your cell phone is covered in honey too. Out of instinct, you try to wash off your phone then realize ohhhh snap. Water + cell phone = big time no no no.
Anyways. We use a small cookie scooper thingy whenever we make energy bites and it makes the most perfect 1-inch Healthy Nutella Energy Bites (or Nutella anything!) you will have in your life. No mess. No ruined cell phone. No problem! Enjoy!
