Hi my friends! How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you all ate plentiful and had a fantastic time with family & friends! Mr. Delish and I hosted Thanksgiving this year for our family and some friends (we were 12 people total) and had a great time despite some hectic moments. Let me tell ya, I will never underestimate the time it takes to get everything on the table at the same time! The last hour or so before we planned on sitting down to eat was chaos in the kitchen! I can’t even remember why it was so chaotic but it was. Mr. Delish and I were running around the kitchen like chickens with their heads cut off LOL!
I don’t know how you all do it but I’ll welcome any tips on how you manage to get everything on the table at the same time (while being relaxed of course 😉 ). And it’s not like we procrastinated or anything….I started prepping for this two days in advanced! Man, I need to get better at this for next year
But let’s move on to these amazeballs shall we? My friend David brought these Energy Bites for a get together we had at our home a few weeks ago and they were a hit! I knew right away that I had to recreate and blog about them. In fact, all of my friends are waiting for this recipe right now and I better hurry and post it before they get mad at me.
These No Bake Energy Bites are full of healthy ingredients, but you would never know it as they are very indulgent. The chocolate chips and the peanut butter are what makes them a little naughty in my book, but the extra calories are definitely worth it. There is a reason why they’re called “Energy Bites” after all 😉
Friends, you’re welcome!
I would like to credit David’s friend Suzy for sharing this with him. I also did a search for this recipe and it’s all over the internet! So I truly don’t know who was the creator of these Energy Bites and I apologize for not crediting the appropriate person.
- 1 cup dry oatmeal
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips but you can use your favorite ones)

- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla.
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl using a spatula or a wooden spoon.
