Picture this: I get off work at 6PM. I’m pretty hungry, so I pick up some ingredients at the grocery store to make a nice, healthy dinner. I head home, but when I get to the door, I notice that it’s open (I guess that would be hard to miss.) There is this awful smell coming from my house. I walk in and head to the kitchen. The floor is soaked with water, and my sister is beside her boyfriend, crying hysterically. And the whole half of the kitchen where the oven is located is completely black.
The kitchen almost burned down that day, but thank God my sister was okay. She handled it herself, and I was very proud of her. I, on the other hand,would probably have frozen in place, waved my arms in the air and stared like those people in the Sims (ah yes, my favorite computer game as a child)
So needless to say, I couldn’t make dinner. No worries though, I didn’t feel too hungry after that scare. Usually when I need to calm myself down, I bake something. Well, that turned out to be a slight problem now that the oven was completely melted. Instead, I made this cute energy balls. Three ingredients, no bake, so easy! Then I went to McDonalds. The ultimate comfort food. So much for the healthy dinner I had planned…
What you’ll need:
-1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
-1/3 cup maple syrup
-1 cup oats
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup and oats until fully combined.
2. Form into small balls, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or place the balls on a plate, and place in the freezer. Freeze for around 2 hours. Place balls in freezer bag.
