Before I jump in and tell you about the recipe for the Energy Bites, I have to share a funny story!
For this post I dashed over to Foods Co to purchase Honest Tea® and Simple Truth® Beef Jerky. Dan and I loved both! We guzzled the tea (it’s just a tad sweet – a lovely tea!). We decided it’s the perfect sip!
The Beef Jerky is a perfect grab-n-go. I’ve been tucking it in Dan’s lunch, it’s a great snack and I ❤️ that it’s organic also!
So anyway, I’m at the store and to pick up more tea and jerky. As I take my turn in line, the clerk asks me if I want a bag (we purchase bags in California for .10 cents each) and I said yes, and said I didn’t want to juggle everything. The lady behind me says, well she’s just being honest!
I think I looked at her with the strangest expression and she repeats – you’re just being honest! Now the clerk is looking at her too… She smiles and says you’re being honest…. Honest Tea…. get it? Oh we all got a great laugh! 🤣
I chatted with this kind stranger. We talked about the flavors we love and I got a great story to boot! I got a chuckle and wanted to share this story!
To go with these delicious products I wanted to offer you my recipe for Fig and Cranberry No Bake Energy Bites. They are an energy packed treat you can store in your refrigerator or freezer for a on-the-go snack!
No Bake Energy Bites full of organic ingredients and the taste is pure deliciousness!
Loaded with organic, nutritional foods – walnuts, figs and cranberries, these bites have delicious flavor and fiber to give you the energy you need!
As I mentioned earlier, I purchased this at Foods Co (they are part of the Kroger family) and I found both the tea and jerky in the Energy Drink Aisle.
Great on-the-go and easy snack options are Fig and Cranberry No Bake Energy Bites, Simple Truth Beef Jerky, organic fruit and for a refreshing beverage be sure to pick up some Honest Tea.
The Fig and Cranberry No Bake Energy Bites are packed with organic walnuts and fruit with just a touch of honey.
When you get ready to make the energy bites it will only take you 10 minutes! You’ll measure out the nuts, fruit, vanilla, honey. Add a pinch of salt and into the food processor, they go until they are ground uniformly.
Stir in the oatmeal and shape them into little balls. It doesn’t get easier than that! I store them in plastic bags. They can be refrigerated or frozen and they store beautifully.
So tell me what are your go-to snacks? Have you tried Honest Tea or Simple Truth Beef Jerky? Are you going to make these yummy No Bake Energy Bites?
