Sharing is caring!

I am excited to introduce you guys to Shelley and Gretchen from Two Healthy Kitchens here to share their Peanut Butter and Jelly No-Bake Snack Bites. Two Healthy Kitchens shares nutritious food for all of those busy, busy people.  They make cooking fun and have great recipes for the kiddos like this Healthy Sugared-Vanilla Yogurt Fruit Dip or this Peanut Butter Silk Pie Dip with Greek Yogurt..oh, and don’t forget this delicious No-Bake Fruit Pizza! Head over and check out all of their unique, delicious recipes that are healthy and perfect for the little ones!

I have recently been on a snack bite kick and have been making lots of combinations of these things. I always freeze a batch and keep a batch on hand. These things go fast–so get ready to save this recipe and keep it handy! My toddler loves popping one of these in his mouth as a “treat”! Welcome Shelley and Gretchen!

Peanut Butter and Jelly No-Bake Snack Bites

Hello, A Cedar Spoon readers! We’re Gretchen and Shelley from Two Healthy Kitchens, and we’re SO excited to share this recipe with you! We truly admire Julia’s creative recipes and amazing photography, and we were just thrilled when she invited us to guest post!

But … as excited as we are to be here, we’re even more excited for Julia! Her beautiful Andrew is just so perfect!  Welcome to the world, little guy!

Over at Two Healthy Kitchens, we focus on quick and healthy recipes for busy families. So, when Julia asked us to guest post, we knew just what we wanted to share with you – an easy, lifesaving, tantrum-averting recipe for busy moms (especially busy moms like Julia with tiny kiddos)!

Peanut Butter and Jelly No-Bake Snack Bites

We remember the days when our lives revolved around naps and feedings …

You finally get the bag packed and the diaper changed (and most likely the outfit, too!), just hoping to keep everyone happy so you can spend 15 minutes at the store. And what happens while you’re perusing the produce?

Of course … someone is hungry. It might be you. It might be your 3-year-old shopping helper. Either way, someone needs a snack. And soon.

What’s a busy momma to do?

You save the day, of course! You’re totally prepared with a wholesome, healthy, hearty snack!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Bites

These Peanut Butter and Jelly No-Bake Snack Bites are loaded with keep-you-full-and-energized protein and whole grains, so they’re the perfect snack to tuck in your bag to fend off impending hunger meltdowns.

We’ve taken Snack Bites on walks and long car rides, and to plenty of soccer games. We’ve munched on them before workouts. We’ve sent them with the kids as an afterschool snack, and with our husbands as a last-minute breakfast. Truly, they’re the perfect wake-me-up, keep-me-going, get-me-through-the-workout, fill-me-up-with-nutritious-goodies snack!

And these have the ultimate kid-friendly flavor: peanut butter and jelly! Just like a PB&J sandwich, but far less messy! The perfect blend of flavors that all kiddos (and adults!) love, in a portable, easy-to-eat bite!

Plus they’re no-bake and a total snap to make! Added bonus: they freeze great, so you can stockpile some for grab-and-go emergencies!

Peanut Butter and Jelly No-Bake Snack Bites

Back when we first started blogging, our very first post at THK was a recipe for Snack Bites, and our families, friends and THK readers are still crazy about them! Seriously – our families are so upset whenever we run out! (Picture tears and whining … even from our husbands!) We’ve developed and posted several flavors to keep up with the demand, so if you’re wishing for more delicious flavors, please visit our Snack Bites page.

We’ve really enjoyed our day here at A Cedar Spoon, and we hope you’ll love our Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Bites just as much as we do!

Peanut Butter and Jelly No-Bake Snack Bites {Guest Post by Two Healthy Kitchens}

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup natural, creamy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons 100% fruit strawberry jelly or jam
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup cherry-flavored dried cranberries (see note)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except dried cranberries.
  2. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add cranberries to mixture and stir again, just until combined.
  4. Using your hands, press firmly to form one-inch balls.
  5. Place in air-tight container and refrigerate until serving.

Notes

We have tested these Snack Bites with dried cranberries, cherry-flavored cranberries and strawberries. All of those dried fruits work, but we felt the cherry-flavored cranberries offered great flavor while also begin relatively cost-effective and easy to find at the store.

If your peanut butter is one of the natural brands that needs to be refrigerated, then so do your Snack Bites. Actually, regardless of the peanut butter you use, these will keep much better in the refrigerator. They can even be frozen (so you may want to make a triple batch!). When frozen, these Snack Bites will be thawed in about 20 minutes.

Ahh, I do love little bite-sized snacks like this, and am newly, happily converted to loving the PB&J combination. So cute and so tasty - problem is I have to wait till some sort of social event or I have lots of people to offer them to before I can make snacks like this, as I do overindulge if they're just sitting there so temptingly on the counter:D
