I am dragging. I have had 3…ok possibly 4 cups of coffee today. I get up early to get the kids out the door, and I stay up late to get my work done. There are 3 of them (5 if you count the Hubby and the Dog) and just one little ole’ me. I need all the help in the energy department I can get. Since I have been running in and out the door like a crazy woman, grabbing whatever is handy to munch on the way. I wanted to have a healthy treat ready to grab at a moments notice. Enter these No-Bake Energy Balls. They are full of protein, fiber, and a little bit of chocolate to keep this momma on her toes.
Since the kids helped me make them (as if they need more energy) my 4 year old said that they would be better with sprinkles…PINK sprinkles. 😉 If you are making these for a snack for the kids after school, or before sports, you can roll them in sprinkles; whatever color you choose. Now my only problem, is only eating one of these yummy treats!
