So, all of a sudden, my kids are ravenous all the time.
For snacks.
Not so much at actual mealtimes.

They eat a ton of fruit and stuff but I can only stretch that so far in a week before it runs out and I have to substitute other things.
I much prefer homemade over pre-packaged snacks so I usually make cookies, but since being on my dessert-strike I’ve tried to steer clear of the homemade goodies.
I know my weaknesses pretty well.

That’s why I was excited to try this recipe for no-bake energy bites.
These are really quick and easy so go whip up a batch for yourself right now!

Somewhat healthy + peanut butter + tasty = LOVE

No-Bake Energy Bites

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything together well.

Chill in refrigerator for half an hour.

Form into balls.
Keeps for up to one week in refrigerator (in airtight container), but they’re guaranteed to not last that long.
