Healthy chocolate energy bars

If you’ve tried my peanut butter energy bars, then you’re gonna love these chocolate energy bars.

They’re really just a slight variation of the original recipe and I love them both!

I use Goji berries in these, but you can use any dried fruit you like really.

These chocolate energy bars are a fabulous post workout snack

As you may already know, they’re my favourite go-to, pre gym brekkie.

They’re also fabulous as a post workout snack, especially if you need something quick and nutritious to refuel your energy stores.

I suggest keeping them in a container in the freezer, so you can just grab one whenever you like.
