I think it is safe to say that peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite combo of all time. I have shared these no-bake PB chocolate chips bars, this peanut butter chocolate shake, and now I have a peanut butter cacao energy bite recipe to share!
These remind me a lot of my favorite Lara Bar flavor “peanut butter chocolate chip” and that is because they are made with a lot of the same ingredients! These are even better though, because you can make them right in your own home for a much better price. I love having a couple of these bites as an afternoon snack or one of them for some pre-workout energy. They also would be great to put in a Stasher Bag to take to work or school! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
