These 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Energy Bites are super easy to make with ingredients that you have on hand. They are rich in protein and make a perfect healthy snack.
A couple of years ago when I saw a recipe for energy bites or balls, I knew that it would be something that I would love to try. Since then, I have made several kinds of bites and enjoy making new flavors. I usually like to make unique and out of the box flavors but with these ones, I kept it super simple for an easy and quick snack.
My daughter is now old enough to be having snacks regularly. And trust me, she asks us for snacks all the time. I am a huge snacker and when I am having something to eat, Adalyn wants some too. One day during her nap time, I was wanting something sweet so I threw together these energy bites.
I did not plan on sharing them but when I tasted them and realized how simple they were, I had to share the recipe. You can customize them based on what you have on hand and what your preferences are. If you like dried fruit, throw that in. If you want almond butter instead of peanut butter, use that.
I used granola for my recipe since that was what I had on hand but I am sure that plain oats would work as well. The granola gave the bites a crunch which I really liked.
