No Bake Energy Bites

No Bake Energy Bites

Once upon a time, life got really really ridiculously good looking busy. Princess Talitha wished life could slow down so she could, you know, eat… and stuff. But, alas, life refused Talitha’s request and forged ahead, twice as fast as before. Queue me entering, stage left, doing 2 room makeovers/facelifts in 4 weeks. PLUS prepping the house for guests. PLUS doing crazy amounts of yard work to keep the snakes at bay.

By the time my mom got here this past Saturday, I was exhausted. She told me about this great recipe for a little pick-me-up that was packed full of great proteins. Twenty minutes later I had these delicious no bake energy bites!

No Bake Energy Bites

I swear, my mom and I were fighting over these delicious energy bites. When my energy has been lacking after a long day of gardening, I have been grabbing one little bite and its got just enough protein to keep me going.

Something so fantastic about them is that they are totally customizable! You want some raisins? Go for it! Want to go even more healthy and add some wheat germ! Make all the varieties your little squishy heart wants. And seriously, how can you go wrong with no bake??? I dare to say, you can’t!

So tell me, is it just me or is life moving faster and faster?

  1. I firmly believe there are not enough Zoolander references being made in the world today! So, major props to you!
    PS ~ The recipe looks awesome – I’m excited to try it and feel healthy!

  2. Bwahahaa! I think I’m going to make that my new saying because that is the greatest thing ever! Who doesn’t want to have a really really ridiculously good looking day? And a Zoolander reference can only makes it better. This is why you’re my favorite. And these energy bites! They look amazing! I can’t wait to make some! My little is going to LOVE these! And you. 🙂

  3. I think I might try this with PB2 (powdered peanut butter) to reduce the amount of fat a little. I bet they would still be really yummy.
