Yesterday, after flipping my living room upside down in search of a missing birth certificate, taking a wrong turn on route to our destination, spending two hours at the passport office, we came back home with our son coming down with his first fever.
I knew something wasn’t quite right with him as the whole two hours we waited at the passport office all he wanted to do was cuddle and he is not one to cuddle. But yesterday, he was more than content to sit in my arms with his head buried in my chest when usually he can barely sit on my lap without wanting to get down and moving around.
Luckily, he had a decent night of sleep but was still not 100% himself when he woke up today…and neither was I after what felt like a broken night of sleep for myself. Do mamas ever get rest when their babes are sick?
So this morning, I am thankful for coffee and White Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Energy bites; both of which I’ll probably be having more of than I should! On the bright side, I am enjoying these baby cuddles! Oh, and these energy bites!!
White Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Energy Bites
1 cup oats (I used quick oats but old-fashioned oats work too!)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp cinnamon
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir to mix thoroughly. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 30 minutes.
- Remove from refrigerator and roll into 1 inch balls.
- Store in airtight container, in the refrigerator, for up to one week.
Optional – Roll balls in cinnamon sugar mixture to add a bit more flavour!
