Coconut Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Like their rectangular and over-processed sibling the energy bar, these whole-food energy balls are an endurance windfall when training, or fantastic as a pick-me-up during a long shift at work. One bite will tell you how delicious clean energy can taste, but flavor isn’t where the benefits stop. Loaded with fiber, potassium, and iron from the coconut, and omega-3 fatty acids from the almond butter these energy balls are a snap to prepare and will keep your stamina high while in the saddle, behind your laptop, and everywhere else you need sustained, wholesome fuel.
