{No Bake} Muesli Maple Peanut Butter Energy Bites

One of my dear readers had a recipe suggestion, and I have to admit that I failed and I failed miserably. See, she was asking for recipe for the energy BARS, and I tried so many recipe in the last few days that on the end I just gave up. I couldn’t cut it without making one huge mess, but at least I have like 2 pounds of delicious addition for my cereals of sweetened oats and granola with dry fruits and nuts. I tried going old school before photoshooting bars by freezing the whole mixture in the baking pan, but it crumbled each time when the knife start going through…..sigh! 
Then today while trying it again (ahem! BTW failed attempt) I thought why not rolling it into these bite size balls. Although they are not bars, and they are not as easy to work with as they might look, I manage to make the whole bag of these– however you need to work fast before mixture start cooling off. 
The taste is fantastic, I love this mixture and got to say everything works very well together. My taste tester aka hubster loved it too. As soon as he popped the first bite ball in his mouth it was mmmm reaction, so I know my taste buds are not tricking me into believing that the whole recipe wasn’t worth making ’cause it certainly was worth it.
