If you’re a busy mom, like me, and always running out the door—habitually late for life, then you have to put this recipe for Chocolate Oatmeal Energy Bites on your to-do list. Lately, since my 4-year-old started preschool, I’ve been feeling the pressure to get out the door on time so, of course, something has got to give–I find that it’s usually my breakfast “time”. Right now, I’m running on iced matcha lattes and 2 of these sinfully delicious Chocolate Oatmeal Energy Bites. I got the idea for this recipe from my favorite radio personality @radioamy (those who know me also know I refer to her as my friend, even though we’ve never met).
This is a quick and easy recipe that you can make in no time and not feel too guilty about eating. I make a batch of them on Sunday night (takes about 15 minutes) and store them in the refrigerator. They last me all week– as long as I don’t share with anyone!
Most days, these Chocolate Oatmeal Energy Bites sustain me until lunchtime. I usually grab 2 of them on my way out the door and eat them with my iced matcha latte, which you can find my recipe for here.
