Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Balls – Jump Start Your Busy Day!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Balls – Jump Start Your Busy Day!

 

Wow!  It feels good to just sit down and breathe after that whirlwind that was the holiday season.  Thank goodness the weather here was perfect for being outdoors…we all really benefited from it!  I was sad to see the boys go back to school, really, but it is nice to also be able to think..and to spend some one on one time with the 3 year old.  

I created this delicious recipe that is jam packed with good ingredients.  They are no bake, easy to make, and simple to keep in the fridge.  I rely on easy snacks and good for you convenience foods like these!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Balls

I love the simplicity of this recipe!  It is so, so easy to make a batch of these energy balls and keep them in the fridge for when you get hungry…or when your kids get hungry!  It is a great snack to help you get through your busy day, and likewise, a great snack for little ones.  (Obviously don’t feed them to kids under 1 due to the honey.) Depending on your ingredients, this could be a great gluten free snack.

 

I prefer using cocoa rice cereal or regular rice cereal in my energy bites because it gives them a great crispy texture that I love.  I also love using crunchy peanut butter for this very reason, but you could for sure use smooth!
