This recipe for No Bake Energy Bars has been a staple in my kitchen for a while now. I have always used peanutbutter to make these, that is, until I made them a few weeks ago with almond butter.
It’s ants on a log remade! While the traditional celery covered with peanut butter and raisins is always a hit in my book, I was looking for something a little different, a little more nutritious, and a little more filling. As a breastfeeding mama with an already high metabolism, I’m always looking for ways to pack in the nutrients while filling my constantly growling belly.
I started with a batch of homemade cinnamon almond butter and a container of sunbutter, as I wanted to see if one was better than the other, and spread them on my celery. I thought the almond butter logs tasted better, but the sunbutter was very tasty, too.
Sprinkle the pistachios on top and viola, you’ll have yourself a satisfying little snack!
Yesterday while Matt was busy photographing a wedding I had what I like to call a “craft-er-noon” and made this car onesie for Micah.
