Oh. My. Gosh. These are the tastiest little things ever! Totally good for you, but they taste like they are totally bad for you – perfect! These are a lot like my trail mix energy bites, but with a chocolate twist! I got the recipe for these from the following pin.
I changed it a little bit by replacing the cocoa powder with raw cacao, reducing the honey, adding a bit of stevia, and increasing the amount of coconut. The result? Heaven in a ball!
I made these the other day, and hubby wolfed down quite a few of them after his run, and I gobbled up the rest of them after that – they go quick! The recipe is quick and simple, and these are great to have in the fridge for a quick healthy snack!

1.) In a mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients (oats, coconut, raw cacao powder, and stevia)
