Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Energy Bites


 I'm always running around and when I'm looking for a quick breakfast or an afternoon snack, energy bites are a great grab-and-go item. I was at a festival yesterday where Girl Scouts were everywhere selling their cookies and I remembered how much I love Tagalongs (the pb/chocolate ones that are so addictive!). I decided to take those flavors and make a better-for-you option and these hit the spot. They have no added sugar and just the right amount of chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth.

1. Place peanut butter and dates in a food processor and process until smooth, about 30 seconds. 


2. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until the mixture forms a thick dough.


3. Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and roll into balls (about 2 tablespoons each). Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
