Need a homemade snack idea your family will love?

Energy bites are yummy no bake treats made with oats and nut butter that can be customized with your family’s individual tastes. These Pistachio Cranberry Energy Bites are SO YUMMY and were super quick to make using a food processor. I love that they are portable and can be conveniently  taken anywhere or packed in lunches.

Pistachio Cranberry Energy Bites

Adapted from the book Energy Balls by Christal Sczebel


1.) Place all ingredients in a food processor and turn on for about a minute or until pretty smooth. Add a little more water if needed.

2.) Roll out teaspoon sized balls on a cookie sheet. Freeze until firm, then enjoy! That’s it! SO EASY

This batch made about 18 balls. Using a recipe nutritional calculator they came in at about 130 calories per ball.

Note: You can definitely use other dried fruits as the original recipe called for dried pears and dates instead of pineapple and cranberries. I knew my kids wouldn’t eat the dates so I just substituted with ones they would! 😊 I also have used peanut butter instead of cashew butter, and I’m sure you could use whichever type of nut butter works for you.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
