Healthy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites

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!
