Need the perfect small snack to maintain your energy while you're on your adventures? You HAVE to try these No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites!
June is almost here and that means two things for us: gardening and camping trips galore! This makes it one of my favorite months of the year. I love having the garden to manage (and reap the benefits of) when we're home and the camping trips that get me back to nature.
However, as I learned from this past week of camping, my body isn't what it used to be. With our hikes and setup of our new trailer, I woke up to a sore back and arms the next day. Luckily, we had TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain with us to help ease the muscle pain so we could enjoy the rest of the trip. But it reminded me that my post-pregnancy body is still in some need of major toning.
We started incorporating exercise into our routine a few weeks ago which has been awesome. But with all of our adventures planned, the yard work, and my exercise routine – I need a little help. I found TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain to help with my muscle aches, but I needed to find something to help me sustain my energy. That's where these No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites come in!
I'm a sucker for just about any trail mix. But I don't feel like they usually have the proper ratio of salty to sweet. Also, where is the peanut butter?! Peanut butter makes almost everything better. And I am SO not a raisin person. So I set out to make my own No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites to incorporate the same delicious flavors in perfect, delicious bite-sized snacks.
The really great thing about these No Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites is that they are totally customizable. So if you feel like trail mix is missing that one key ingredient like I was, add it in! Or omit things you dislike. Or add more of something you really love. Just make sure the ratios of the sticky ingredients are enough to maintain the right consistency to form the balls.
