No Bake Energy Bites – Simple, healthy little balls of peanut buttery, oaty goodness. Just a little bite for when you need a quick and easy snack.
Today I have a fun treat for you. Aside from these cute little no bake energy bites, I have a giveaway going on!! I teamed up with some of my friends are we are giving one lucky winner two (2) Fitbit Charge HR Wireless Activity Bands! I personally don’t have a Fitbit, I have a different brand, but I love it! It is great to see how many steps you have taken, try to hit goals, see your sleep patterns, and just the reminder to be active! So make sure you scroll down to the end for your chance to win his and hers Fitbit bands!
To get you off on the right foot with your Fitbit, I figured I should give you a healthy recipe today. I mean, if you are trying to be active it probably means you want to eat a little better too. That is where these little no bake energy bites come in. They are full of protein, fiber, and other healthy ingredients. But they still have to taste good and be fun, so I added a few mini M&M’s in there. Plus you know my and my peanut butter and chocolate obsession, so the candy was kind of necessary. Kind of the perfect quick and easy snack.
These no bake energy bites come together in just minutes. You just dump all of the ingredients together in a bowl, mix together, and roll into little balls. I like to store ours in the fridge, but that is not necessary. I usually workout right when I wake up in the morning, but sometimes I wake up hungry and then my workouts kind of suck. So I love having these on energy bites on hand. I can grab one quick and it gives me just enough to get my workout done, but not have a stomach full of food. Because that is not good when I workout either. My son loves to grab a couple for his afternoon snack. I have thrown them in his lunch box before too. They are portable and just a great quick and easy snack.
