Hello dearest Rustic Willow readers! I’m so thrilled to be here with y’all today. My name is Madison and I blog over at The Wetherills Say I Do! You can find out more about me at the bottom of this post!
One of my favorite things is food, whether it’s cooking, eating or baking, I love it all! Before I got married, I had no idea that I enjoyed cooking at all, I always thought of it as just a means for survival. But once I got married, there was something I really started to enjoy about creating a meal.
If you’re not a cook though and you’re about to write off this post, don’t just yet because this is no ordinary recipe. This is quite possibly the easiest recipe ever and best part, no baking required!
Let me introduce you to these no bake energy bites. I made about two dozen of these the first time and they were gone in a matter of minutes! So definitely plan to make a lot of these because they will go quickly!
I love the simplicity of these ingredients: oats, peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract and chocolate chips. No need for added sugar, just simple ingredients. These little bites are incredibly easy to make too. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix them together. Refrigerate the mixed ingredients for a half hour. Then take them out and roll into tablespoon sized balls. If they do not feel solid enough and are crumbly, put them back in the fridge for a few minutes. We actually kept ours in the fridge until we ate them because they are so yummy chilled!
Here are the specific ingredients you’ll need:
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
You can also add other ingredients like coconut flakes, nuts, raisins, etc. Experiment with different textures and have fun! You may need to add more peanut butter if you add more ingredients to keep the mixture sticking together.
And it’s that easy! What are your favorite go to snacks?
Thank you so much to Cat for having me today!
