Happy Friday everyone! Woooo! I’ll keep this post short as I have a lot to do before my friends come tonight, but I promised I’d share these three ingredient peanut butter bites with you, and I can’t break a promise!

Workout

So far today my workout has only included my one-mile morning jog with Jack. I am hoping to try one of my new 10 Minute Trainer DVDs after dinner but I haven’t gotten to that yet. I’m still not sure how I feel about the 10 Minute Trainer routines so I’m hoping to give them another shot tonight. I’ll let you guys know!

Recipe

Now this recipe is not anything too mind-boggling. After reading this, you probably won’t say, “I wish I had thought of that!” In fact you probably have all of these ingredients hanging out in your pantry already and may have even tried them together before.

However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t fantastic. They are THE easiest things in the world to create and taste amazing. I could devour a whole batch of these in one sitting if I wasn’t concerned about looking good in a bikini next month. Here’s what you need in order to make these peanut butter bites:

That’s it! I wasn’t joking when I said “three ingredients!” All I did to make these was pull out my food processor, dump in some oats, peanut butter, and nutella.

Then I pulsed everything in the food processor until it was well combined and made a “dough.”

Then I used a spoon to roll the dough into bite-sized balls and put them on a plate. The plate then went into the freezer for about 30 minutes or until the bites were firm (a cookie sheet would work better if you have that much room in your freezer).

And that’s it! Easy right? Plus they are so chocolately and peanut buttery that they make the perfect after-dinner dessert (just be sure to limit yourself to just one).

Once they were frozen I moved them to a Tupperware container and put them back in the freezer, although you could probably also just store them in the fridge. Yummmmm!
