Small BIG crisis…
The. Peanut. Butter. Is. Gone. Seriously. I’mnotkidding.
I was hoping to make this recipe and noticed that my peanut butter jar was nearing the end. But I ALWAYS have an extra. I guess not this time. I went ravaging through my cupboards. Nope, nowhere to be found. Mom–If you’re reading this, we need to make a stop at Sam’s Club, ASAP!
Although this IS the current issue of the utmost importance in the house right now–forget the studying or research project for now–I did manage to have enough peanut butter to make these amazing No-Bake Energy Bites. I’ve made these once before and my husband pretty much gobbled them up before I could try them. But he’s gone all day, so maybe they will last until the morning…or midnight.
What really made me want to
eat make these was the honey that was given to us this weekend from my husband’s aunt. She recently took up beekeeping and she has been very generous to share the sweet nectar as a result! Thank you, Auntie Lori!
You’re going to want to make these energy bites as soon as you see how easy they are to make. Ready. Set. Go.
