I am an esthetician and often don't have time to eat in between appointments. Creating this recipe allowed me to combine healthy foods with cacao nibs which I dearly love to use in any recipe as the health benefits are phenomenal!

Made these today. I didn't mind the looseness of the mix because it was the easiest to roll of any of these I've ever made. And I've made a lot. The taste is great too! If you aren't a fan of cacao nibs try some cocoa powder instead. Read More

The taste is nice the agave lends a good sweetness not overly so. But even after 1 1/2 hrs in the fridge the balls just didn't firm nicely. I think it needs some kind of binder maybe cocoa powder? I may try it again & will probably toast the oats & see if that gives it a less "raw" taste. Not bad but bit as great as expected. Read More

These are great for a quick energy boost. Next time I will be more creative and add dried fruits instead of Chocolate Chips. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly except that I substituted peanut butter for almond butter! It turned out great. They have the same flavors as those chocolate no bake cookies but much healthier. Perfect for when I don t have time to sit down and eat a meal but need to get some nourishment in my body. Read More
