    No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites- a healthy snack recipe

    I heart snacks. We’ve addressed that already. But I never fully understood the importance of having an endless supply of healthy, ready-to-eat snacks on hand until I lived with two growing toddler boys.

    Everyone warned me that boys would eat me out of house and home and man were they right. But you know what? It’s all good. Luckily their mama makes snacks for a living and today I’m excited to share our latest obsession: no bake peanut butter energy bites!

    For even more plant-based protein and omega-3 healthy fats, I use organic creamy peanut butter. Stir in a little honey, oats, flax seed and mini chocolate chips and you’re well on your way to the easiest no-bake snack recipe you’ll ever try.

    1. Thank you for the recipe. Going to go pick up stuff to make them?. I have the regular Go Lean kashi at home and had such a sweet tooth the other night. I made kashi “haystacks” with dark chocolate, peanut butter, and chopped walnuts. The Kashi Go Lean I jave is the high fiber + protein one so I didn’t feel guilty munching on a few. Can’t wait to try these ones.

    2. What can I use instead of Kashi GOLEAN Cluster cereal vanilla Pepita?
      I cannot find that cereal in our town. Thanks.
      I can’t wait to make them..

    3. I’ve made these 3 times now, and my husband and I love them! Having 3 young BOYS, and breastfeeding, I need all the energy I can get, but it’s difficult to find time to eat sometimes! These are so easy to just pop in my mouth while I’m busy doing other things. And they’re great for when I’m craving something sweet, but don’t want to overindulge. Thank you for this recipe.

    4. I just made these again. The first time, right after I read the recipe, my store was out of mini chocolate chips, so I made them with mini M&Ms. The next time, too, only my frige is a side by side, no enough room for ANY of my baking pans. I rolled the balls and dropped them into the cups of an 18 count egg container and it worked like a charm. I took them to work the next day (I’m a cashier at Kroger) and coworkers were worried that I was returning a carton of eggs: “Is there something wrong with them?” “Just look at them!” I opened the carton, and less than 10 minutes later my 5 co-workers had eaten them all. I printed and copied your recipe for them, but they still want me to bring them in all the time.

    5. I don’t normally buy any type of cereal, we use whole wheat, oatmeal, millet, brown rice But if I can find a coupon, I’ll buy the kashi cereal and make these. Thank you for the recipe, then will rate it.

    6. These look amazing Liz!! I never would’ve thought to add cereal to energy bites… But that’s totally brilliant! I really need to get my hands on that cereal! Even if I’m not chasing after toddlers and just trying to give myself enough energy to power through the typical afternoon nap time. ;)
