My New Favorite Energy Bites

Yield 12-14 golf ball size bites

Sweet and salty, with a touch of coconut and a surprising  burst of coffee flavor, these energy bites are just what you need when the 2 pm "hangries" hit.  



    1. Combine 1 tablespoon each of chopped apricots, dark chocolate, and pumpkin seeds in a small bowl. Set aside and save for step 3.
    2. Carefully mix all other ingredients together in a large bowl. Combine well.
    3. Roll into 12-14 golf ball size balls, then roll lightly in the apricot, pumpkin seeds, and dark chocolate topping (from step 1.)
    4. Cover and place in the refrigerator to set for 30 minutes.
    5. Serve cold or at room temperature.
