I feel like people are either lovers of candy corn or haters. Where do you fall? I am definitely a lover but my favorite way to eat candy corn is to pair it with peanuts. Then it taste like a payday! I suppose I could just eat a payday but I like the munchy element of a mix!
I make energy bites probably once or twice a month. I tend to have all of the various ingredients on hand and find them helpful to eat on busy days when I need some thing fast and tasty. I have a few other recipes on my blog if you’re interested here they are!
Other energy bites to try:
But you’re here for the candy corn energy bites! The only thing I will say is that when you mix all of these ingredients together in your mixer, it feels a little bit dry. I was able to scoop out portions and roll it into bites but it took a little bit more rolling. It made 14 small energy bites so I am freezing seven of them and left seven of them in the fridge which last for about seven days.
- 1/2 cup candy corn
- 1/2 cup unsalted peanuts *can use salted or roasted instead
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup rolled or quick oats
- 1/3 cup flax meal
- Put all ingredients in your food processor and blend until the consistency is moist.I did notice it was a little dry but using your hands to roll it into bites still worked just fine. If it's too dry for you, add a little more peanut butter.
I enjoyed these as is and also crumbled up an added to plain yogurt as a sort of granola. I hope you will try them! Do you think you’d eat them as is or crumbled up on yogurt?
