How are you guys holding up so far with resolutions and all that jazz?

I’ve heard we’re getting close to that point when everyone starts to throw in the towel on their New Years resolutions.

One of my goals this year was to wake up early to workout at least 3 days per week. I was doing so good until this past Monday when I overslept because we stayed up late watching Homeland and The Affair.

I was already pretty disappointed in myself and then, to make matters worse, the gym I’ve been going to (Orangetheory Fitness) charged me a no show fee for the class that I missed. WTF?

Somehow the girl that signed me up failed to mention that they charge no show fees. Had I known that, I definitely would have gotten my lazy butt out of bed. I’m not about to pay someone $10 because I missed a workout.

Of course when I called they were willing to refund me the fee but they said the next time it happens it’s a done deal. Okay mom, jeez.

They also said that they process up to 50,000 late fees per month nationwide. Craziness I tell you.

Anyway, let’s talk about energy bites. Cause we need energy to workout.

These No-Bake Blueberry Muffin Energy Bites are based off of an Almond Joy version I posted on here several years ago. They’re one of my favorite quick and easy snacks to whip up. I especially love using crispy brown rice cereal because it gives them a nice light and crispy texture.

This time around I used Erewhon’s Harvest Medley cereal blend which features a combination of sorghum, brown rice and puffed quinoa. Not only is it certified gluten-free but it packs in 3 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber in each serving without any excess added sugars. However, if for some reason you can’t find the Harvest Medley, the Crispy Brown Rice Cereal will also work just fine.

There’s also rolled oats, hemp seeds, ground flax and almond butter in the mix for even more plant protein and fiber. Then pure maple syrup, vanilla extract and dried blueberries offer just enough sweetness and flavor to make you feel like you’re eating a blueberry muffin. They’re so good!

All you need is 1 bowl + 10 minutes to whip them up and they make a perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack to help keep your energy going strong. I hope you love them!

In a large bowl, combine the almond butter and maple syrup then stir together. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until evenly coated. If the mixture seems to wet, sprinkle in a few more oats. If it seems to dry, add a teaspoon of water at a time until moist it’s enough. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Using a scooper, scoop out roughly 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture at a time and roll into balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
