What better way to bond with your kids than having them help you make treats? So for my first celebration of National Chocolate Mint Day, I decided we'd make some yummy Energy Bites with Mint Choc Chip.
The kids are excited! The youngest can’t stop talking about how many he can make and store. I ask myself, do they need any more energy?! But they do. All of them are part of different sports clubs, so I have to make sure they have all the energy they need.
What I like about making treats for my kids rather than giving them store bought products is the fact that I have complete control as to what they’re eating. It's why I prefer using chocolate chips from SunSpire as they are harvested and produced without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The less chemicals my kids ingest from food, the healthier they are and the less paranoid I am!
Anyway, this snack only takes 20 minutes to make. And what’s good about it is that you can store it in the fridge and it will last for days.
2 cups of old fashioned rolled oats
3 tbsp of cocoa powder
1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter
3 tbsp of honey
1 tsp of peppermint extract
1/3 cup of SunSpire Semi-Sweet Baking Chips
2 1/2 tbsp of water
How to make your Energy Bites with Mint Choc Chip
Get a large bowl and mix all the ingredients together. Make sure that everything is mixed together before moving on.
Roll mixture into 20 balls. Try to make the balls equal in size as you can.
Squeeze the ball mixture to get them to stick and hold its shape.
Place in a container and throw in the fridge
