New Year, new recipe, foodie friends! These quick and easy no-bake energy bars were a quick and easy way to get back into the kitchen, Lightning quick to put together, and a snap to shape. You could roll them into balls too, but I have the cutest little silicone bar pan from my friend Kerry O’neill over at Tastefully Simple so I choose to turn mine into “bars” this time.
I have to admit, for as much as I love baking up a storm in the kitchen, I also love a few days or even a week or so off from baking. Gasp! I said it! Even this baker gal needs a little time away from her mixer and oven!
These quick and easy no-bake energy bars are SO good… I had a hard time only eating one at a time. Confession… I didn’t. I enjoyed two as a post-workout snack and it was delightful! Dare I say.. a sweet way to end a spin class????
Feel free to substitute other nut butter for the peanut butter, and you can also omit the chia, hemp, or flaxseeds. I added both flaxseeds and flaxseed meals, but you don’t have to use the seeds.
