Meet the 2 newest occupants of the Ranch, Charlie &
Mel Gus Gus.
Charlie the little girl is a contradiction and I say that for this reason..she is the little explorer & isn't afraid of the dogs, but will hiss and hide from certain noises or movements. She is a lighter orange than her brother and has bigger eyes, she reminds me of a golden tiger. She is more advanced than her brother in the way they she bites on the bottle instead of sucking it, likes canned kittens food better than her milk, and was the first to try the little box.

I decided that I haven't posted in a few days, that I would make something simple, yet yummy and these no-bake bites are it. I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while, so I decided that since I stayed home today that I could make these no-bake energy bites while the kittens took a nap. I was wondering if I would really like these since I like the flavor of coconut, but I can't stand eating shredded, dried coconut- it's something about the texture, but I loved these little bites!
No-Bake Energy Bites
recipe from: gimme some oven
Makes about 20-25 balls1 cup oats (I used old-fashioned oats)
1 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter I used natural pb
1/2 cup ground flaxseed I used wheat germ
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour or longer. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like, I used a small cookie scoop to get about 1'' balls. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
The blog I got this recipe from had a list of options that you could add in or substitute certain ingredients to fit your taste like adding is dates, raisins, nuts, different nut butters instead of peanut butter, and you could use white chocolate or pb chips instead of chocolate. One thing she said though, was to keep the honey instead of using agave because of the thickness of the honey helps keep the mixture together.
