No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites

If there’s one thing I can’t live without, it’s peanut butter. I have it on toast in the morning, with my apple in the afternoon, and would have it for dinner if Jordan would be okay eating it too.

One of my favorite ways to incorporate it is in these energy bites! They are super easy to make and are great for an afternoon snack, post-dinner dessert, or pre-/post-workout.

I’m going to forewarn you though, when I cook or bake, I don’t really abide by measurements and instead go by my tastes. So in order to share this recipe, I did measure things out but feel free to make adjustments to your own tastes as well!
