Crispy Almond Butter Bites

Crispy almond butter bites are packed full of good for you grains and protein. Perfect for a back to school or work energy boost. 



Happy Monday!! 

This week is going to be super busy for me. I will be jumping from one place to the next, having all sorts of meetings and hopefully checking a bunch of the to do list.   In order to brace myself for what is to come I thought I would make some little snacks to give me an extra burst of energy. We can all use a some help in that area once in a while right?




These crispy almond butter bites came together so easy. You throw everything in a bowl and mix.  There is a bit of wait time while the mixture chills in the fridge before you make the balls but they were ready in no time. Three cheers for no bake.

 I thought these would be all mine but Mr. J had a few right after they were done and loved them.  He liked the extra crunch of the rice cereal.

I made these to get me through the work week but they would be great for all those kiddos going back to school.

  8. Ooooh, healthy! I'd probably add enough chocolate to cancel out all the benefits, though, lol.
