I’m currently doing a Whole 30 and find myself missing my daily chocolate. I’m by no means a sugar addict – we rarely have dessert around the house (because I have zeeeero self control) and when given the choice – we usually opt for savory treats like yummy pizza, a cheeseboard, etc. But I do really love my dark chocolate. I like to buy high quality, super dark chocolate and enjoy a square mid afternoon. It’s just a little bit sweet + the perfect way to end the day.
I’ve found myself really missing that little square of dark chocolate during the afternoon slump. Most afternoons I just drink some tea or have some fruit, but the other day I was SO tempted to break into my chocolate stash. Instead – I opted to make some of these Whole 30 Chocolate Coffee Energy Bites! AKA – a total lifesaver when the sugar cravings hit. (Which believe me, they will happen when you do a Whole30 – no matter what you eat or how many rounds you’ve done!)
You’re probably thinking – well I don’t have the time or energy to make bites during the week, especially when it’s the middle of the day. But actually, if you have the right tools – you do! I have been a fan of NutriBullet products for pretty much forever, but I recently got to try out their NutriBullet Balance which is SO darn cool. While my old NutriBullet is amazing, I have totally fallen in love with this one.
It looks like their regular NutriBullet, but it’s waaaay more high-tech! The blade + base have bluetooth technology that can measure what ingredients you’re putting into the cup and help you track your nutrition via their app. If you’re someone who loves to count macros or see how much protein, carbs + fat you’re getting in your meals – you are going to love this! It’s great for seeing what the nutrition facts are on your breakfast smoothie – but it also worked perfect for calculating the nutrition facts on these bites (I just had to divide it by the 12 for the serving size 🙂 )
So many of you are always asking for nutrition facts for my recipes – so I used the NutriBullet Balance’s calculations to share them below for this one! In addition to being able to track all the nutrition facts on these little bites- the NutriBullet Balance was able to blend up the bites to a smooth consistency pretty quickly. No fussing around, scraping the edges and trying to mix things up evenly – this thing is POWERFUL and helped me get the perfect snack ready in no time!
I know that you guys are going to love these! Check out the recipe below

These Whole 30 Chocolate Coffee Energy Bites are perfect for meal prepping in advance. I love making them on Sunday night + just knowing that they’re in the fridge in case those sugar cravings kick in and fruit or tea won’t do the job. If you’re looking for something easy + yummy – these are the perfect treat! If you don’t have a NutriBullet Balance, I highly recommend them. I had my regular NutriBullet for over 4 years before upgrading to this one. They’re an amazing kitchen tool to have! I use it for so many things…smoothies, soups, energy bites + more – you can make pretty much anything in them! My kitchen would totally be lost without it.
