DIY No-bake Nutella Energy Bites

Lately I have been feeling like I need to improve my eating habits.  Ever since having Molly, I usually don’t eat more than 1 complete meal per day, and that’s with a reminder from our nanny to eat since she’s watching Molly.  Once she leaves, Molly consumes my time and eating healthily falls by the wayside.  I usually reach for snack-type things and unfortunately they aren’t healthy.  Not great.  So when I received an email from SELF Magazine (one of my favorites for so many reasons!) with a link to DIY Energy Bites, I was intrigued.  I clicked on it to find 9 no-bake recipes which include Pumpkin & Dark Chocolate Bites, Cookie Dough Bites and these Nutella Bites.  I absolutely love Nutella, and I could really use something that’s a bit healthier to snack on that still satisfies my chocolate craving, so I gave these a try.  The original recipe can be found in the link, but I have altered it slightly due to my taste and things I had in the house.  These are definitely yummy and SUPER easy to make – give them a try!
