Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Peanut Butter Energy Bites

These mighty peanut butter bites have a great peanut butter and maple flavor along with a crunch from the nuggets Cereal. There is fiber and plant compounds from the ground oats and some added protein from the nonfat dry milk powder. One of my favorite ways to serve these is with a dried strawberry or cherry in the center of the bite, with the bite rolled in unsweetened shredded coconut.
