Chocolate Drizzled Granola Balls

We simply couldn’t resist making this recipe!  It probably didn’t hurt that we’re chocolate loving, registered dietitians and personal trainers (that just happen to have identical DNA), and who are always on the hunt for healthy and waistline-friendly ways for you and for our clients to get their chocolate fix!  Oh yeah–and for us to get our fix too! 🙂

After first making our healthy Coco Chia Granola Balls, and loving them and the whole NO-Bake concept–and the sprinkle of the appetite satisfying chia seed that swells in your stomach and takes up space to help to keep you satisfied– we practically dreamt this chocolate version up in our sleep. Yup, we had this in mind for us and for you and for all of our waistlines! 😉

This recipe is so easy, yet so delish!  No baking required! This is an awesome way to get some chia, oats and chocolate if you are trying to incorporate any of them in your life!  For the love of veggies, and for the love of all things chocolate, 😉  you’ve gotta give these a bite!
