HEALTHY NO-BAKE PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN BITES

If there is one thing that I undoubtedly love – it’s peanut butter. Not that you’re all that surprised. Um, hello, my blog name: With Peanut Butter on Top! My husband can attest to my spoon-feeding-myself-obsession with enthusiasm. I have never seen someone so humored by how easily (and well) I can attack a jar of peanut butter. The only weapon I need is my spoon! Not to swat away from sharing, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Naturally, I had to create more of a meal or snack option out of a jar. I can make a meal out of a jar of peanut butter alone, don’t get me wrong. But my husband prefers concoctions made from peanut butter rather than spoonfuls of it. Crazy, silly man.

The best thing about this recipe is the versatility. If you’re not a fan of chocolate chips, sub with nuts or dried fruit. Or replace it with dark chocolate for a healthier option. Prefer almond butter or cashew? Swap the peanut butter out for the nut butter you prefer.

I could go on! That’s the beauty of recipes like these!

TOOLS USED IN THIS RECIPE

  • Glass Mixing Bowl
  • Cookie Scoop – truly helps and is the easiest way to handle/roll out these bites, as they are sticky. Also a great way to make sure each bite is portioned correctly.
  • Parchment Paper Sheets – no cutting needed. Simply pull out the parchment sheet and use! I store my bites in an airtight container and divide them with one of these sheets.
  • Glass Food Storage Container – these work great for storing in the fridge or freezer.

HELPFUL TIPS

  1. Use a cookie scoop to portion out and roll the bites. It makes life so much easier to use one of these, as well as guaranteeing you will end up with 12 bites!
  2. These bites are a bit sticky to roll, which is why the cookie scoop works great. Less time rolling with your hands. I would be quick to roll these or place them into the freezer for a few minutes to help harden them prior to rolling.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. They are freezer-friendly.
  4. Use parchment paper to separate them if stacking in a container.
  5. If the mixture seems dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of additional honey or peanut butter. If the mixture seems to be too wet, add a little extra oatmeal or ground flax seeds. The balls should be firm and chewy, as well as a bit sticky.
