- Make more time for fun.
That’s tentatively my 1st new year’s resolution for the year. Btw, do you write your resolutions in ranking of importance order, or just jot them down as they come to mind?
I’m sort of in the “ranking of importance” boat and it totally makes me overthink the whole business of it, even though one of my resolutions, ironically, is not to overthink things so much.
Of course, I haven’t written this resolution on my list because I haven’t decided how important it is yet. 🤦♀️
Update: as widely requested, I’ve finally made a chocolate version of this super tasty recipe! Try it here: → 4 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites Recipe.
Ah… the irony. So let’s take a crack at a non-ranked list to start. One item on my list, which I already told you about in my Easy Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Muffins recipe, was “to share more quick breads, muffins, and cupcake recipes with you.” Done and done! But not… because there’s more to come!
More resolutions (again, in no order of importance):
- Share even easier recipes with you.
- Share more complex recipes with you.
- Stop being so gosh darn unintentionally ironic all the time.
- Look up the definition of irony and make sure I’m using it right.
So let’s go with #3, for the sake of progress and simplifying things. 🙂 A while back, I shared my gluten free vegan chocolate peanut butter truffles with you. They are a bit of a cult fan fave (the people who love it, really love it, but many folks just don’t know about it). The thing I absolutely loved about that recipe was how simple the peanut butter bite part of the truffle was.
Back then, I fretted about whether the peanut butter bite element of that recipe wasn’t sweet enough, or if it just tasted like an energy bite. Since then, folks have told me it’s one of their favorite desserts… but, I still had it stuck in my head that the peanut butter energy bite hiding in that truffle recipe would have to have its day in the sun.
Guess what? Today is that day!!! Aw, yeah!
Folks, this 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites Recipe could not be easier. It’s just 3 simple ingredients—made delightfully with the ever-popular coconut flour. It’s as easy as throwing those 3 ingredients in: peanut butter, maple syrup, and coconut flour. Stirring until thickened (so that the delicious coconut flour has time to absorb and become one with the PB and maple syrup). Chill for 20 minutes, until firm. Then, scooping and rolling!
That’s seriously it. Could it BE any easier? Thank you, Chandler, for the exaggerated “BE.” 😉 That brings me back to my first resolution: “Make more time for fun.”
You’d think as a food blogger, I’m humming, happily skipping around, 24/7 hugging my whisks and gigantor jars of peanut butter. While this may or may not be true most of the time, there are times when I’m just tired. I literally get to points when I just cannot be in the kitchen anymore.
But what happens when folks get hungry… then hangry? So I started creating the easiest, simplest recipes I could think of. That way, Erik or I could whip them up in no time. And quickly get out of the kitchen before it became our mortal enemy. J/k! Ish…
