After last week’s Nutella Energy bite, I was feeling like we needed something a liiiittle more healthier. But speaking of those yummy little Nutella bites, have you tried them yet?! World Nutella Day is coming up on February 5th, perfect timing for you to give them a try!!

I saved a few energy bite recipes I have come across and on my list were these ones: Carrot Cake Energy Bites! These little bites have so much packed into them; coconut oil, peanut butter, honey, oats, chia seeds, flax, coconut, carrot and a dash of cinnamon!!! All that in these delightfully tasty little bites. I know what I’m grabbing for a quick breakfast on the run tomorrow!
