|5 Ingredient PB&J Energy Bites|
Peanut Butter & Jelly.
I fancy myself a pretty good writer, but words fail me to adequately describe this food pair. I won't set myself up for failure in attempting to describe why it works...alls I know is WORK IT DOES.
So much so, that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are almost as iconic an American dish as the cheeseburger. Saving moms and babysitters since 1901 (thanks Google), the salty-sweet duo is sheer perfection.
These days, a growing awareness of wheat and peanut allergies has sent the PB&J to the back of the lunchbox line. Many schools won't allow the little legumes on the premises, and I understand why.
However, that doesn't mean that your favorite flavor pair is lost forever! These PB&J energy bites deliver all the satisfaction of that impeccable combination, in a portable snack size. Natural sugars from all-fruit jam and sticky medjool dates pairs with fat and protein from almonds and peanut butter for a slow, steady release of energy. Oats offer more fiber and sustenance for a treat that is satisfying enough to be breakfast, dessert or a snack.
And best of all? That's it! Only FIVE ingredients and 10 minutes of your time means that you can have a batch of these to last throughout the week with almost no effort.
So next time you're mourning the Jif/Wonderbread PB&J of old, turn to these insanely delicious energy bites and get the best of both worlds.
