Feature Friday - No Bake Energy Bites

I mentioned several weeks ago that we had changed the way we eat around here.  In fact, I plan on writing a big post about it tomorrow to tell you how it's gone and what we've learned.  One challenge was figuring out how to do portable snacks.  I didn't want the processed grab bag snacks, but I needed something we could just take along.  This recipe is a win for that.

This week I tried out a recipe one of my sisters uses and loves.  These no bake energy bites come from Maggie at Smashed Peas and Carrots right HERE.  There are a billion recipes like this on pinterest, but I liked Maggie's and she talks about lots of ways to do substitutes so you change them up a bit.

Here's what I liked about them.  They were really easy to make.  It takes a few minutes to throw it all in,..... 

....30 minutes to chill, roll it into balls, and you're set.  The boys really liked these.  They are plenty sweet.  There are a few chocolate chips in there too, so the boys think they are eating cookies.

They are loaded with lots of healthy stuff too - flax seed, oatmeal, and peanut butter.  (We use the peanut butter straight from the machines at the health stores so there's no added sugar.)

So it you're looking for a healthy grab-and-go snack, these are a great idea.  The recipe is HERE.  Thanks for sharing it, Maggie.

Thanks for stopping by.
