I’m always looking for new recipes to make for Lilly. I came across this one on Pinterest and thought I would check it out. So I went right to the source “Juggling With Kids” and found the recipe here. She’s got some great activities for kids on her blog too. I then looked up the link from her post, which came from “Smashed Peas and Carrots” – another great blog you can find here.
No Bake Energy Bar
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey (or agave nector to make it vegan)
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed (love putting this in everything)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Directions: (what I did)
1. All dry ingredients in bowl.
2. Add wet ingredients and mix well.
3. Put in fridge for 30 minutes (I did 45 as I lost track of time).
4. Roll into balls.
5. Limit intake of “no bake energy bars” – they are too good to be true!
Mixing wet and dry ingredients:
No Bake Energy Bites
Now, I thought my picky little eater might be interested in these.
I was wrong!!!! She didn’t like them :(
However, the next day I gave one to her again and she gobbled it up!
She’s loves them and now asks for “more”.
Looks like these will be a staple “treat” for the family. AND so easy to make vegan.
