Keeping true to my 30 x 30 resolutions, I tested one of my Pinterest recipes last weekend.
Unfortunately, the pin was created by someone who doesn’t understand how blogs work. If you like a blog with a recipe and link the pin, it must be linked to the actual post, not just the blog URL.
I spent forever (five minutes) scrolling through a blog about flowers? before deciding to wing it.
The actual pin is for “Energy Bites,” but I found myself referring to them as “Energy Balls,” and it stuck.
I recommend this recipe as a treat or a quick breakfast.
1 cup dry oatmeal
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1. Mix the peanut butter and honey together. Add the oats, vanilla and chocolate chips. Mix until well-blended.
2. Using a small cookie scoop, form balls from the mix and drop onto wax paper. Let sit for 15 – 30 minutes.
I recommend storing in the fridge to keep a more solid consistency.
I assume you could use a no-bake cookie approach to this recipe and melt the honey and peanut butter on the stove before mixing in the oats, vanilla and chocolate chips.
But why add a step when it tastes so good like this?
Try out the recipe and let me know what you think. What would you add to this recipe?
