This is a throwback snack, with a few twists. Many people remember their moms making them when they were little, more often recalled as ‘peanut butter balls’. I changed the name to ‘energy bites’ because I added a few healthy mix-ins and I wanted to avoid comparison to a certain SNL skit with Pete Schweddy.
These little energy bites have a good balance of protein and fat to help get you or your little ones through the afternoon, along with a little nutritional boost and a kiss of sweetness to make it appealing to every palate.
The options for mix-ins are endless. Wheat germ, flax seed, chia seed, hemp seed, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, nuts, almost any dried fruit. Choose whatever combination is most delicious to you.
