Chocolate chai bites

No-bake chocolate chai energy bites recipe

Inspired by Diwali, these no-bake energy bites created by Sarah Jade of Tastes by Jade are the perfect celebration treat!

Growing up, my favourite part of celebrating the Festival of Lights with my family was the sweets. I would literally devour a whole box of sweets in one night...

I’ve partnered with Save on Energy to share creative energy-efficient ways of preparing food. This recipe doesn’t require any baking or heating. The chocolate balls are sweet but are also full of wholesome ingredients (so you can devour a dozen, guilt-free).
