We spent Halloween with the Arlington kids. The d-i-l made these peanut butter energy bites and we thought G was going to drown in his own spit.
No bake peanut butter energy bites are soft, sweet and a perfect little healthy snack to tide you over until your next meal, especially if you are trying to cut down on your sugar consumption. No baking required and made with just 3 healthy ingredients. G is totally in love.
HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER ENERGY BITES
1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
2/3 cup peanut butter or any nut butter
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (optional)
Combine all the ingredients.
Take 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time and roll into balls.
Refrigerate for 2 hours, allowing the oats enough time to soften.
Store the energy bites in the refrigerator.
PEANUT BUTTER ENERGY BITES CAN BE FROZEN!
These peanut butter energy bites can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for about 1 hour until they are frozen solid throughout, then transfer them to an airtight container. (This way they won’t stick to each other).
Place the bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat some they can be thawed in the fridge overnight and enjoyed the next day for a perfect on the go snack or breakfast!
* From the Recipe Box:
According to G, the chance of them lasting 3 months is ludicrously amusing. Yes, he loved them that much.
and remember: Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out. Big kiss, Lynn,
