Sugar-Free Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Bites | SweetLeaf®

When you need a little pick-me-up that won’t cause you to crash shortly after, these little energy bites—featuring SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Hazelnut Sweet Drops and a little SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener—will do the trick! No baking required and low-carb, gluten-free, grain-free and, of course, without sugar.


Chocolate coating


Grind hazelnuts in a food processor, then add salt, flaxseed, and chia seeds. Pulse to incorporate. Add in sunflower butter and SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Hazelnut Sweet Drops. Pulse until combined. Make 14 tablespoon-sized balls. Refrigerate until hardened, about 30 minutes.

Mix chocolate coating ingredients together in a bowl. Drop one energy bite into coating and stir to coat. Remove with a fork and lay on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Continue with the rest, then refrigerate until hardened. Best if kept refrigerated.

Serves: 14

    Only stevia can save us. I recently lost 14 lbs. using stevia. I recommend your website as I continue along the sunny happy way.

        This is a good tasting non-alcoholic refreshing beverage using SweatLeaf Liquid Stevia Vanilla Creme Sweet Drops. This serves one and takes five minutes of concentration.
