No-Bake Energy Bites

Lately my life has been pretty crazy, so I find myself eating on the go all the time. However, I won’t take my busy lifestyle as an excuse to eat junk. As a result, I’ve altered a no-bake energy bite recipe from another blog to fit my personal taste. Don’t worry if you’re not exactly a culinary expert, as assembling these scrumptious snacks is extremely easy!

Start by mixing all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl with a spatula or spoon. When everything is well combined, let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to make the assembly easier.

Once the mixture is chilled, take a small handful and begin shaping it into a ball.(Don’t be afraid to get a little sticky!)

Keep rolling until the “batter” is gone–there will probably be about 20-25. The bites can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. I prefer having them frozen, but they will be just fine in the fridge if you want them softer.
