These Dark Chocolate Fig Oatmeal Bites Will Give You Life

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably trying to eat healthier, but having minor serious sugar withdrawals. I always crave chocolate after my meals (think cookies and cake!) and don’t want to spoil all the clean eating progress I’ve made throughout the day. These bites are life-giving and absolutely lifesaving. Also, life-changing.

Six ingredients and 10 minutes to whip together? Yes, please. Not only are these good for all our resolutions, but they work with a busy schedule and don’t require any baking. I buy my dried figs in a huge bag from Costco, if you’re wondering where to get them. I think they’re $9? Anyway, we snack on them plain, but they can be a little intense on their own, and I prefer them mixed in with something. (You can also check out my recipe making a similar energy bite with dates.)

I used my new Vitamix A2500 to make these bites. I’ve literally used it every single day. I’m pretty sure a good blender is the key to eating more healthy, more often, because I have never consumed as many consecutive smoothies as I have in the past 10 days. If you’re on the fence about finally making the investment for a machine, DO IT.
