Double the chocolate, double the fun! Double Chocolate Cherry Chia bites with Chocolate Chips are a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth while getting an extra boost of omegas and fiber. These bites are grain free, easy to make, vegan friendly, protein packed, and the perfect balance of chocolate with dried tart cherries.
Well, I’m down for another update. Geeze I have a lot of old healthy bite recipe to revamp or retake pictures. But can I be honest? I’m kinda liking this. It makes me think more creatively, plus I can eat the extra or sell them to my gym clients. That’s a win, win right?
Anyway, a few years back I wrote a post on 3 ways to use chia! If you want, you can read it and see the old recipe here (warning, it’s old school). Haha. But the recipe I had used a gluten free cereal and another “fudge” like flavor in the chocolate cherry bites.
Today I decided to take it up a notch. I’m adding and subtracting ingredients to these chocolate cherry bites. In fact, I even used black chia seed. Whoa… so matchy match!
But the main reason I am keeping both is so that you can choose your texture and macronutrient intake. Obviously the bites posted in the old recipe are more crunchy and have a little more sugar and carbohydrate per bite. So they would be great for post workout/recovery fuel.
These bites are grain free and great for pre or post workout. Naturally sweetened and with a bit more healthy fats added… oh and DARK CHOCOLATE.
So here ya go, let me know if you try the new ones!Print
Now, enjoy the weekend and good luck to all those running, racing, training out there. It’s going to be a great weekend for it.
chocolate + cherry = double antioxidants. Would you agree?
p.s. stay tuned for next Friday. A giveaway for October healthy bites!
