Pick-Me-Up Peanut Butter Bites

{Pick-Me-Up Peanut Butter Bites} Alert! These are going to be your new favorite 3pm snack. 

These bites have food porn written all over them. The peanut butter makes eat bite smooth and crunchy (with a hint of salt), while the oats and fruit add a sweet/hearty mouthful to the goodness.   I adapted this recipe from Dr. Oz, whom I’d like to thank for turning me into a hypochondriac. My tweaks on his original recipe makes these energy bars  more satisfying and (of course) portioned, so  there is no mystery as to how much you should be eating.

If you are looking for a great snack to keep on hand to satisfy a child, or just looking to cure a mid day sweet tooth, these are a great option.  Oh, did I forget to mention that they are bake free? That’s right, all you need is a bowl, a pan and a refrigerator…. and obviously the ingredients.

Ingredients: 1 cup of instant oats (uncooked), 1/4 a cup of smooth peanut butter, 1/4 a cup of super chunky peanut butter, 6 large dried prunes (chopped), 3 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of vanilla. **If you do not like prunes feel free to substitute with your favorite dried fruit)

Get It Cookin’: 

  • Mix in a bowl
  • Pour mixture into a non stick sprayed 5 by 7 inch dish

{No Bake Energy Bars}
