Mama's Tired Energy Bars

Hello, friends! Lately, I've been feeling worn down. We're talking 2-4 cups of coffee, bags under my eyes, zombie shuffle and in bed by 8 PM kind of tired. Last weekend I whipped up some no-bake energy bars to grab on the go. They turned out better than I imagined! Since they are jam packed with protein they give me an extra boost of energy to help get me through the day.


1 15 oz jar of peanut butter (or 2 cups)

1 8 oz jar of honey (or 1 cup)

1 tbsp vanilla extract

2 cups oats

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Melt the peanut butter and honey in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract.

Mix in 2 cups of oats.

Place mixture into a greased 8x8 pan or a loaf pan. Smooth the mixture. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the oats.

Place in the refrigerator to set.

It's seriously that easy! I prepare my energy bars in a loaf pan and cut them into bars that are about 1 inch wide. I then cut the bars in half. These little babies really help give me that extra "oomph" to get me through the day.
