Chunky Monkey No Bake Energy Bite Recipe / Running in a Skirt

Hi guys!

To be completely honest with you… I’m not much of a snacker.   I’m much more likely to eat a slightly larger meal and wait until the next one to eat.  However occasionally, especially on a running day, I’ll get hungry mid-morning or mid-afternoon.  I’ll often reach for handful of almonds, fresh fruit or some sort of bite sized snack I’ve made.  Little energy bites are the perfect snack to keep around because they are satisfying and take the edge off your hunger until it’s time to eat again.

In the past I’ve showed you Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites, Banana Bread Energy Bites, Peppermint Fudge Energy Bites, Gingerbread Energy Bites and 4 Ingredient Energy Bites… but my Chunky Monkey No Bake Energy Bites are currently at the top of the list.

My version features oatmeal, almonds, mashed bananas and just enough chocolate chips to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The Chunky Monkey is inspired by that famous ice cream flavor, which I love.  Luckily my Chunky Monkey No Bake Energy Bites are a whole lot better for you.  The give a satisfying energy boost in a total clean eating package.

Plus they kind of taste like a cookie… but you don’t actually have to bake them!  By making these you are winning at life on so many levels here. 🙂
