No Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Jason loved these! They’re healthy, flourless, easy to make and packed full of nutrients. They make a great all natural dessert, an anytime snack or a pre workout boost. They’re great to have around the house. You can even shape them flat to make bars instead of bites. Take them on a hike, or stash some in your gym bag.
