We are HUGE fans of the no-bake energy bites here at Forkly. We understand the need and importance of a few factors when it comes to homemade goods for those with a busier lifestyle. Anything within the realm of QUICK, EASY and HEALTHY, is exactly what we love to aim for.

So yes, we’ve made a few of these little energy balls from inspired by some of our favorite not-so-healthy desserts such as Cake Batter, Pecan Pie and Carrot Cake.

When we made these, we knew they would be delicious with the ingredients we were making them from, but we did not anticipate just how FUDGY they would be. Let alone a near exact taste of brownie batter.

We made these with no added sugar, and all healthy, natural ingredients. So it’s an indulgence you can actually feel good about!

Packed with proteins and completely dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.
