A perfect recipe for when you have a little left over quinoa. I have a jar of powdered peanut butter in my cupboard that I haven’t used yet. Just wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. But then I had that little bit of left over quinoa and a big hankering for a cookie. Boom – a no-bake energy bite was born!
The recipe makes just 6 to 9 or so balls, depending on how big you make them. Heck, make a big batch and just store them in the freezer. That’s what I do.
