Home Again

Heading to pick up our baby!  So glad she we will be back home again soon!  Her trip was very meaningful and great, but thankful for her safe return.  We are looking forward to hearing all about it. 

I tried a recipe from Pinterest ...
No-Bake Energy Bites
(makes 18-20 bites)

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated.  Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.  Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy!  Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

They are a pretty good little snack but probably about 90-100 calories per bite.  That is a little more than I want right now for us since we are all trying to lose weight.  It is a good all natural little snack though.  Chuck and I agreed we would much rather work on making Dad's oatmeal cookies a little healthier.
