No Bake Energy Bites

I like no-bake.

I can do no-bake.

Can you?!

(I think I’ve been reading too many emergent readers and early readers with Charlie and Ryan lately!)

Loving these simple No-Bake Energy Bites from Smashed Peas and Carrots!

I’m going to try these, but will add some protein powder to the recipe. My toddler loves granola bars, so I’m hoping he will love granola balls as well.

These are awesome!! I made them after you pinned them on Pinterest. Substituted SunButter and they are our new favorite. Great for little hands to squish together. But we will double them next time we make them because they go speedy quick!

After this post on Facebook I decided this would be part of our “school” for today. I had the kids help me measure and mix it. When we got done I let them taste it before we put it in the frig. My 5 year old said, “These are really healthy too!” :D

I just made these, thanks for the recipe. I swapped 1/2 the peanut butter for nutella and I toasted the coconut. Mmmmmm!

Great idea to use nutella!!! Love!

I just made these today and they were wonderful and so easy to make. I used raw almond butter (unsweetened) and unsweetened coconut and they were still plenty sweet for hubby and me. Thanks for posting!

Awesome Elizabeth!

I made these tonight. Didn’t want to ground the flax seed so I just added a smaller amount of the seed. Added some golden raisins I had on hand, and forgot the vanilla. Still superb! Next time (in the next few days I am sure) I will make more and try it with almond extract. Soooo goood!!

These sound really good as I love granola bars but can’t eat the store granola bars anymore since going gluten free. However, I really don’t like coconut. Is there anything gluten-free I could use to substitute the coconut?

Easy, quick, healthy and yummy. What else can you ask for? Thank you.
