Now that Cheyenne is older and likes to walk home from school herself I like to surprise her with a healthy snack when she gets home. Finding something to make that doesn’t take much time and has wholesome ingredients is always a must. When we found these healthy Peanut Butter Snack Bites we knew we had a winner!
The recipe is simple and straightforward; the kids can even make it on their own! It is the kids’ favourite play date snack now too.
You start with:
- 1 cup large flaked rolled oats
- ½ cup Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter
- ¼ cup honey
Once you gather the ingredients all you have to do is follow these three simple steps.
First – Mix ingredients together in a medium bowl until blended
Second – Roll into 20 (1-inch) balls, using about 2 Tbsp for each
Third – Chill for 20-30 minutes
Once you’ve mastered the recipe it is easy to switch things up by adding ingredients. A few of our favourites include:
- pumpkin seeds
- chia seeds
- chocolate chips
- icing sugar
- toffee bits
They might not all be the healthiest choices but having options is always a must for Cheyenne’s afterschool snack. You can add a couple ingredients to the batter or just stick with your favourite to make the perfect bites. I love oatmeal raisin cookies so adding a ¼ cup of raisins to the batter makes them the perfect small snack bite!
Why not try the Kraft All Natural Peanut Butter in either Smooth or Crunchy at home! When you find your favourite recipe you can visit sheblogs Canada to enter the Make It Yours photo contest. By sharing your recipe you will be entered to win 1 of 4 Kraft Peanut Butter prize packs.
The best part of an afterschool snack is how she loves to sit there and have a conversation while she’s eating. It is those moments that make being a stay at home Mom so rewarding.
