Packed with tons of coffee and chocolate flavors and similar to the texture of a brownie, these no-bake energy bites will keep you going all afternoon!
If this is what energy looks like, guys…Pretty sure I’m gonna be wired 24/7 from here on out.
Since well…I’m obviously gonna have to eat espresso energy bites all day every day.
Completely and totally up for the challenge, guys. A little/a lot of energy never hurt anyone.
But…let’s try to aim for a lot, okay? Cool.
Similar to the other energy bites we’ve done thus far around here, the base for these little guys are Medjool dates. If you’re not the hugest fan of dates, don’t worry cause I’m not either and I swear you won’t even notice they’re there in these energy bites. The chocolate and coffee flavors kiiiiinda steal the show.
And I’m okay with that. You?
You can seriously knock these energy bites out in 5-10 minutes flat, guys. Everything gets thrown in the food processor, ground up until it’s a dough, roll ’em out, and either chill ’em or eat ’em all right then and there.
I’m down for just eating them all. Surprised?
Seriously, HIDE THESE in the most secret spot ever. They’re not gonna last 10 minutes otherwise.
Don’t hide them from ‘yoself though. ♥

I want one of these energy bites right now! I’m sitting in a coffee shop starving and wish I could grab on off the screen – love the espresso in there.
I am all about caffeine and these energy bites look so delicious with a mix of brownie & espresso!

That’s so delicious. I like chocolate so much. More energy is always a good thing! Many thanks.
Chocolate always bring the delicious taste and sweet. Espresso flavor imbued will give you a taste of novelty and fragrant coffee. The cake is delicious, make a new taste of coffee, we must eat now.

Now these are my kind of energy bites! I just bought a bag of Larbar (I think that’s how it’s spelled?) brownie energy bites, and these remind me of them. Love the no-bake version of these and the espresso in here! Just perfect!
