My summer mornings are spent feeding five hungry mouths and by the time I’m finished tending to the needs of my children, I’ve completely forgotten to feed myself. I believe this to be a problem most moms have and by late morning, our grumbling stomachs demand food. In turn, we reach for the easy-to-grab-and-eat snacks rather than a breakfast that will energize us and help us get through our mornings without that familiar tummy growl.
To help me choose a better-for-me morning food, I whip up a big batch of these Simple No-Bake Energy Bites that are super tasty (who doesn’t love chocolate in the morning?) and help me stay energized without that pesky crash. They store easily in the fridge, so I can quickly grab one as I’m putting away the milk from morning cereal for the kids.
To start, put some peanut butter, honey, and vanilla into a mixing bowl and combine.
Once that’s done, add some oats, shredded coconut, ground flaxseed, and miniature chocolate chips and stir until everything is evenly coated.
Transfer your bowl to the fridge for about ten or so minutes just to make the mixture easy to mold.
Start molding the mixture into small, bite-sized balls and transfer them to a container with an airtight lid.
These are stored in the fridge and can be eaten one or two at a time for a morning kickstart. They’re really yummy and it almost feels like eating cookie dough for breakfast!
The key to staying on track during the busy summer mornings is to keep easy solutions on hand that you can quickly grab and eat. With five children needing my attention, assistance, and love each day, I understand how full a mom’s hands can get and how easy it is to brush your needs aside. That’s when these energy bites come in hand and why I also keep a few of the satisfying Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups, a delicious blend of yogurt and multigrain granola with real fruit and crunchy nuts, in my pantry. By simply adding cold milk, the dry ingredients transform into a yummy yogurt treat! Quaker Real Medleys comes in several delicious flavors and are a satisfying way to get some of your whole grains in for the day. My go-to flavor is Strawberry Almond, but they also carry Apple Cinnamon and Raspberry Pecan at my local Walmart. Crunchy. Cool. Yum.
