These no bake peanut butter energy bites are the perfect solution.
|I clearly wasn't in the mood for even cutting.|
So simple that they hardly need a recipe, these bites are also amenable to modification. Have a different puffed cereal to hand? No problem - swap away. Want to make things more sophisticated? Almond butter and cranberries would be a festive twist. In a chocolate mood? Throw in some cocoa, or chocolate chips.
I don't think you can go wrong.
No bake peanut butter energy bites
Vegan and very, very easy!
Makes 8 - 12 squares, depending on how small you cut them (I cut 10, unevenly)
1 cup puffed rice
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup currants (small raisins)
3 tbsp black strap molasses
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
Line a square or rectangular baking dish with non-stick baking paper. Transfer the peanut butter mixture into your dish and press down. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
Store in the fridge.
I imagine these would keep well in the fridge, but I'll confess to not letting them last long enough to find out.
