Energy bites are one of my favourite healthy snacks, there are so many variations that I never get bored. They are packed full of nutrients and provide a much needed energy boost in the afternoon. I make a batch a couple of times a week and keep them in the fridge to snack on whenever I get hungry. They are quick and easy to make and you can use almost any combination of oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruit. I compiled a list of 20 of the best no bake energy bites recipes. There are lots of different flavours so I am sure there will be something to suit everyone.

We were recently sent two wooden puzzles from the Hape George Luck range to try. Little Man and Little Miss were eager to try them when they arrived as they love doing puzzles. Little Miss’ favourite animal is a rabbit so she was particularly pleased with the Rainbow Rabbit puzzle. I am a huge fan of the Hape range of toys and have been impressed with the products we have purchased in the past. I was interested to see what these puzzles would be like and am happy to say they lived up to the expectation I had of Hape.
The Rainbow Rabbit puzzle has 6 colourful pieces that fit together to form two rabbits, a large one and a smaller one. There is a hole at the back to help with the removal of the puzzle pieces. I am very pleased it is there as otherwise the children would tip the puzzle upside down sending pieces flying everywhere!
Little Miss (3) found the puzzle quite tricky at first but after I helped her a few times she became more confident and was happy to attempt it on her own. She still needed a little help but there is always an older brother around to lend a hand. This has quickly become one of Little Miss’ favourite puzzles and she asks to do it most days.
We were also sent the Arctic Animals puzzle which Little Man (5) has had lots of fun with. The Arctic scene shows two polar bears, a walrus and a killer whale along with the ice and sea. There is a hidden puzzle underneath which Little Man was delighted with. This shows another arctic scene of dolphins swimming in the sea. Little Man found the puzzle a little difficult but with lots of concentration and by using the picture on the box as a guide he managed to complete it without any help. My older two boys aged 7 and 9 also enjoyed completing the puzzle.
The puzzles are excellent for helping to develop problem solving skills, hand-eye coordination and concentration. They also spark imagination, Little Miss loves to talk about the mama rabbit and baby rabbit. The Arctic puzzle is a perfect introduction to discussing animals that live in the Arctic.
The Rainbow Rabbit puzzle is suitable from age 3+ and is available from Amazon priced at £5.99.
The Arctic Animals Puzzle is suitable from age 5+ and is available from Yes Bebe priced at £12.99.
I received the puzzles for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
