No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites

I recently started keeping track of what I eat in a day, and how much time is in between each meals. I  noticed that very often I start to get groggy somewhere between 2PM and 4PM. You know? Those afternoons, time is winding down and you're just waiting to get off of work?

Sadly, I would find myself binge eating during that time. I'd want something to boost me up. I would grab a soda, a chocolate bar, chips. Anything that I could just pop into my mouth to wake me up.




These Peanut Butter Energy Bites are the perfect snack. Not only does it give you that of energy to wake you up, but it's give you an extra boost of protein and fiber. And best part...it doesn't take long to cook. 

No hot ovens. No stove. It's literally that simple to make.

1/3 cup of peanut butter or almond butter

-In a mixing bowl, take your oats, peanut butter, and honey and stir until everything is evenly mixed
-Place bowl into the fridge and allow to sit for 20-30 minutes. It needs to chill so that it can be easier to roll

-Store in the fridge and enjoy when ready

You don't need a ton of ingredients to create this. If you want a little more, you can throw some almonds, raisins, or chia seeds for even more nutritional value.

This is the perfect snack for those in between meals and you're trying to avoid eating junk food. It was exactly what I needed, and kicked that groggy yearn for chips right out.
