Spicy Energy Bites + Giveaway!

Spicy Energy Bites - Gluten Free, Vegan, Healthy, and No Bake

It’s always fun to get a package in the mail. It’s even more fun when you don’t know what’s going to be in the package.

As you probably know, I am a member of Peanut Butter & Co’s Yum Squad, so I get to participate in fun challenges to create amazing treats. This particular challenge was extra special and exciting since it was a #MysteryIngredient challenge. It’s to celebrate National Peanut Butter month and showcase how versatile peanut butter is.

#MysteryIngredient Challenge

When I opened the box, I saw a giant bottle of Sriracha. At first I was a bit panicked. I mean when I think of peanut butter, I think of sweet … not spicy. But I remained undeterred.

It would have been easy to create a spicy peanut noodle dish, but I wanted to think outside of the box. It took some time, but I decided on Spicy Energy Bites.

Not only are these little bites gluten free, healthy, and vegan, but they also pack a major nutritional and spicy punch. Seriously you look at them and think they’re innocent little treats. Oh, no, these things are fierce … just like me 🙂

Spicy Energy Bites

I paired the Sriracha with not only the peanut butter, but also carob powder to add another, complementary assertive flavor and some maple syrup as a balancing sweetener.

Everyone loved these Bites. I wasn’t sure what people would think but the sweet, spicy flavors were really well received. I know that you will love these easy to make, no bake treats! Make up a batch to celebrate National Peanut Butter Month!!!

And to enhance the celebration, Peanut Butter & Co has been kind enough to offer a giveaway of two jars of Mighty Maple peanut butter!

  1. Mmmm, spicy. I love anything spicy. Sriracha is perfect in these little bites — it’s a bit sweet, too, so it’s the perfect addition. Really good stuff — thanks.
