Choco Orange Energy Bites

It’s been far too long since I shared a recipe with you guys. I’m so sorry. I could list off a number of excuses but I’m not going to!

I’m so jealous that I’m not doing the London Marathon today but I have managed to get a place in next year’s which is super exciting. I’m going to be training and following a plan from one of Britain’s top marathon runners with the aim of achieving 3hr 30mins. Thank the lord it’s another year away, I’ve a lot to get working on.

For my Irish followers tomorrow (Monday 25th April) I will feature in Taste Ireland magazine. It covers an interview with me all about my blogging, eating and fitness habits. There is of course a cheeky recipe in there too. Please pick up a copy and let me know what you think.

For my english followers next weekend I will be at Be Fit Women’s Fitness Festival with Quest so please come a long to our booth and say hello if you are around. There will be lots of Quest bars, I promise.


I’ve made chocolate orange protein bars before, which are frigin delicious if you haven’t tried them yet. This time round I’ve made an adapted (largely adapted) truffle energy bites Yes I love my truffles, but you will love them too when you try them.


Ingredients (Makes 12 – or 10 if you are like me and eat the batter)


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Pulse for 10 seconds.
  2. Form into 10 balls. If you find it’s too wet add more cocoa powder and if too dry add more orange juice.
  3. Place in the fridge to set for an hour.
