Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Published by on

I got back from the gym this morning and I was starving. I was so proud of myself for my good workout, but now all I wanted was CANDY!!!

Luckily I was out of candy in the house so I had to think bigger… or smaller. What did I have that would satisfy this craving?

I found this super easy recipe on Pinterest, I have no idea where it came from, but will attach the link to the Pinterest pic.

Peanut butter and chocolate chips would surely satisfy my grumbling tummy. Add in some flax seed, honey and oats and you’ve got yourself a super fast, healthy and more importantly, delicious protein boost, that makes up for not having candy around the house.

My cravings are gone and I didn’t house a big candy bar to do it. Genius! What are your quick craving cures?
