bites

I’ve seen these little no-bake energy bites on Pinterest for quite some time, but last night (at midnight!) I finally decided to make them. It took virtually no time at all, PLUS they’re super yummy and healthy. Win-Win-Win!

NO BAKE ENERGY BITES
PREP: 10 MINS TOTAL: 10 MINS
INGREDIENTS:

1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned Quaker oats)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips (minis may be better)
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.
Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 20-25 balls.

Recipe spotted @ Gimme Some Oven (although I tweaked it a bit..took out the coconut and added a pinch of cinnamon.)

Why The Britax Clicktight Car Seat Really Is A #Gamechanger!

April 11, 2015
Screen Shot 2015-04-11 at 7.02.52 PM

I’ve tried my fair share of car seats … FOUR to be exact (and #CharlieB isn’t even two yet!). But now, I look no further. The Britax Advocate ClickTight car seat is all I ever needed!

I could give you all the safety features and the extensive list of impressive data, but Britax has already done all of that for you (just click HERE). What I will do is give you my list of pros and cons for the car seat that has been accurately dubbed the “#GameChanger”.

PROS

-It literally took me less than a minute to install it. ME! Our last car seats all had to be installed by my husband.

-It’s super plush and therefore comfy for my tall toddler.

-It’s a convertible seat that goes from newborn to toddler seamlessly.

-There are seven recline positions. SEVEN! Plus easy to read indicator on the side makes knowing which position to put your child in fool-proof.

-More than anything, the enhanced safety features give me peace of mind like no other.

CONS

-I wish it had a cup holder.

Yep, that’s my only con. And I just found out you can order one as an attachment on the Britax website for about 15 bucks.

As a product tester it’s really important for me to be able to stand behind my words and trust the items I endorse. Without a doubt, I will be recommending the Britax ClickTight car seat to every SASY mom I know!
