These four-ingredient bites are so awesome. They're a little crunchy after the chocolate has hardened a bit. The making of them can get a little messy, but it only means you get to lick the chocolate from your fingers constantly and nobody is there to stop you.



  1. Place the chocolate chips in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over (but not in) a small saucepan with about an inch of simmering water and melt over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the granola and flax seeds and stir to combine. Stick the bowl in the freezer to cool and harden the mixture a little bit, about 6 minutes. This makes it easier to roll the mixture into little balls.
  3. Arrange the coconut on a large baking sheet. Using your hands or an ice cream scoop, scoop out a small amount of the chocolate-granola mixture and roll it around in the coconut, making little balls. Little bites. Little ball bites. Repeat with the remaining chocolate-granola mixture and coconut.
  4. Place the tray back in the freezer to harden, at least 5 minutes. Store the bites in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days.
