What’s Cooking? Fruit and nut peanut butter snack bites

Peanut butter bites with fruit and nuts on eatlivetravelwrite.comApril. In a teacher’s calendar, it always signals a flurry of activity. Somehow, after the sleepy winter months, life seems to speed up and there don’t seem to be enough hours in the day. I’ve got a lot on the go at the moment, both in school and in my “down time” so I am always on the lookout for quick and easy snacks that fill me up on the go.

Fortunately, this month’s Kraft Canada #whatscooking assignment had us working with the peanut butter snack bites recipe collection – peanut (or another nut) butter is my “go to” for a quick fix – spread on a couple of crackers, on a banana or even just a spoonful on the run – it keeps my hunger at bay but it’s not always convenient to stop and prepare a snack (or carry a jar around in my purse!). Enter these Fruit and Nut Peanut Butter Snack Bites.

I’ve adapted these to work with the fruit and nuts I had on hand – they are so versatile.

Easy energy bites with peanut butter, fruit and nuts.
Recipe type: Snacks
Serves: 24 bites

  • ½ cup Kraft Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • ¼ cup runny honey
  • 1 cup large flake rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries, chopped
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

  1. Mix peanut butter and honey in medium bowl until blended.
  2. Using a rubber spatula, gently press in the oats, cranberries, almonds and pumpkin seeds.
  3. Roll into approximately 24 (1-inch) balls, using a heaped tablespoon measure.
  4. Can be refrigerated for up to one week before serving.

The great thing about these is that you really only need one or maybe two – they are packed with protein from the nuts and seeds. They will definitely keep you going in between meal times, even at your crazy-busiest!

  1. I always struggle with food that contains what I would call conflicting tastes…. peanut butter as a sweet dish. I can’t conceive it.
    I suppose my disbelief arose many years ago when I saw my grandfather eat a sandwich with jam and cheese. I was gobsmacked….
    Anyway, Mardi, these look pretty good and nicely filling.
