To all you Nutella lovers out there, there’s a way to enjoy Nutella at breakfast and it’s not just a boring smear of Nutella on a piece of wheat toast. Oh no, these Nutella Breakfast Energy Bites are packed with chia seeds and ground flaxseed and lots of oats. When you pop a few of these with some morning coffee you’ll feel good about eating these, I’ve cut down on the amount of honey to offset the sugar in the Nutella. I think you’ll really like these, and they are incredibly fast and easy to whip up!
I love these since they also make a great breakfast-on-the-go, or an eat at your desk. We all do it, run out the door without eating breakfast but sucking down that oh-so-needing cup of coffee. Well, now you don’t need to resort to that anymore. Keep a bowl of these little guys in the fridge, then just grab a few on your way to work!
-2 cups quick oats

1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Refrigerate 15 minutes, then roll into balls. Yes, it’s that easy. I like to keep mine stored in the fridge for a cool refreshing energy snack.
