Healthy Snack: Peanut Butter Energy Bites

peanut butter energy bites recipe

With my serious weakness for peanut butter, I can't believe it's taken me this long to share this quick snack idea with you! It was a staple in our house when I was growing up -- my mom made them for just about every tennis match through college and they were always a fan favorite.

When we were on the no carb diet a few weeks ago, coming up with "take to work" snacks was a real challenge. Although I am back to eating carbs {thank goodness!} my husband is still doing pretty well with the no carb eating -- I have been making his breakfast and lunches for the week ahead of time and no carb dinners for both of us. Anyways, back to these delicious peanut butter bites. Whether you are on a diet or not, I think everyone can appreciate a recipe for a snack, especially when you hit a wall around 3pm! With only a few healthy ingredients {there are old fashioned oats in these, just an FYI for the no carb dieters!}, they are quick and easy to make over the weekend and you can enjoy them all work week long. That is, if they make it through the week. I have a hard time limiting myself to just one. 

I finished the energy bites off with a little dusting of powdered sugar for the pictures. If you are looking for the healthier version of these, I would just skip the powdered sugar dusting :) Check out the recipe below -- you won't be able to just eat one!

  9. These look good. If I keep them in an airtight container, will they be okay without being put in the fridge? (I have never liked putting anything in a fridge at work.)

    1. Hi Robin! Yes, they should be fine! I left two in a Ziploc bag and ate them the next day and they were just as good. Thanks so much for reading! xo
