No Bake Energy Bites

With about a dozen cookies down the hatch to myself, I decided I needed something healthier that would take the edge off. And these babies did just that. I had all the ingredients on-hand, they were super quick to throw together and completely satisfied any cravings I had. Plus, my kids love these, too and have been gobbling up their dinner just to have one afterward.

Magic, I tell you.
