Yesterday after a long, exhaustive day looking at houses (why is house buying the worst activity ever?) I needed a little pick me up. Ok, a serious pick me up. So very quietly after the kids went to bed I made myself a small(ish) batch of cookie dough. Not cookies. Cookie dough. And I’m not ashamed to say that it was just what I needed. However today, still in the midst of a housing
crisis dilemma and feeling seriously low (although nonstop activities with the kids today might have also factored in to that) I decided to make these no bake energy bites. And unlike the cookie dough admission which obviously has to be said in a whisper these energy bites can actually be shared with others! No need to make post bedtime.
This is all I had left when the thought to take a picture occurred to me….(oops, hehe)…delicious!
This closely resembles a no bake cookie recipe I’ve been making since 1st grade (thank you Mrs. McCloud) but this recipe doesn’t have any sugar and no butter! Better yet I threw in some flax seed so I can officially call it good for me.
I didn’t actually add the toasted coconut because 1) we didn’t have any and 2) I wanted anyone other than myself to eat them. I also only added a few tsp of flaxseed because it’s new to us and I don’t want all of our tummies to go into immediate distress with all the healthiness.
