Energy Balls

I think it’s a little ironic that I’m posting a recipe for energy balls when I have anything BUT energy these days.

Maybe it’s wishful thinking that these would actually give me magical energy to make it through the day slash somehow make my baby sleep longer than 3 hours at a time. Either way, I ain’t gots the energy to compete in my Dietbet. And this no processed sugar goal I made for myself is nearly killing me! Truth be told, I have given in a few times this week, but I blame that on lack of husband’s presence and lack of sleep.

I’m starting to understand why last time I had a baby I told myself “I’ll work out when I have the energy”.

Things are coming full circle for the Lauren.


I’m going to finish this Dietbet strong because that’s what I do and then I’ll be eating all the cookies in the world reassessing my ambitions for the body I once used to know.

SO, until then, healthy eating is happening up in this household. I will prevail…she said whilst praying fervently. 

Peanut Butter Energy Bites

I made these peanut butter energy balls last week in hopes of satisfying my sweet cravings and it worked! Mind you, I ate like, 31 of them {and the recipe makes 36} but that’s besides the point. If you’re trying to eat healthy or signed up for my Dietbet, then you’re in luck 🙂

Even if you’re not on the healthy eating train, these still make a mighty tasty snack or dessert when you need a quick fix.

They come together in about 20 minutes and totally qualify as no-bake treats. Holla!

Perfect little nuggets of sweet peanut butter heaven!

    Love these! The rice krispies give it a great texture. I’ve made similar recipes without them & never would have put them in on my own. Turns out, this has become our favorite! Thank you!

    Hi Lauren! I’ve only used the powder peanut butter in my Kale shakes. So I’m looking forward to trying this recipe. What brand of Rice Krispies do you use in your recipe?

      Peanuts that have been ground and most of fat has been removed making it a powder like protein powder. Brand name is PB2 and is carried in stores like BJ ‘s wholesale and company has a website about the product.

    I am diabetic and would find it helpful if you could possibly include the calorie count and carbs in these healthy recipes. I love your blog! Thanks!
