I was recently asked by The J.M. Smucker Company to create some unique tips for using a new product and I wanted to share with you… Energy bites!
My kids beg for this energy bites recipe. I mean… seriously… beg!
I love them too.
My husband loves them too.
I guess… we all love them. Most of all I love them because they are packed with protein making them the perfect snack for anyone… and all ages.
I just got to try this new Jif Peanut Powder. It is almost like Peanut butter in a powder form. Pretty cool right?
See, here is a close up… it is a powder! The cool thing is that it has 85% less fat than traditional powder and 7-9 grams of protein per serving. It is great for smoothies and baking. I decided to jazz up my normal granola bites recipe with this new Jif Peanut powder. The results were delicious!
Like I said before, the family loved them. I almost had an angry mob on my hands because I didn’t make enough for everyone to have more. 🙂
I learned my lesson though and will definitely make more tomorrow (yes, they have already requested more tomorrow).
Now I ran to Walmart to grab the Jif Peanut Powder, and I even saved $1 by using ibotta. If you are new to ibotta, make sure you read this post on how your smart phone can save you money.
They are ready to eat immediately. If you want extras just double or triple the recipe and store in an air tight container in the fridge. They are perfect for an after school snack and for the afternoon when we all seem to get a bit sluggish.
I love the peanut butter flavor mixed with the chocolate – YUM!
