Energizing Peanut Butter Snack Bites


My youngest daughter, Amber loves to stick together with me to help me in the kitchen.  We call her my shadow because of how close she likes to be next to me… constantly.  When cooking, she also loves to lick the batter from her hands, so the other day I made a snack with her that was ok to eat raw: Energizing Peanut Butter Snack Bites.

Peanut Butter Snack Bites
Made with the goodness of Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter, honey, ground chia, quinoa and dark chocolate chips, this is a snack that is both delicious and nutritious.  

The first thing we did was cook a 1/4 cup of quinoa. After we cooked it, we cooled the quinoa in the refrigerator while we mixed the remaining ingredients together in a medium bowl.

We then added the quinoa in and stirred everything together.


We then placed our bowl in the refrigerator to harden while we folded laundry together.  Not only is Amber a good helper in the kitchen, but she’s also a good helper around the house.  Finally 30 minutes had passed, and it was time to roll our Peanut Butter Snack Bites into tasty balls.


High in nutrients, the ground chia gives our Energizing Peanut Butter Snack bites it’s dark colour.  The Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter gives it a delicious peanut flavour and holds everything together.


Amber and I stuck together and had a lot of fun making delicious Energizing Peanut Butter Snack Bites that the whole family could enjoy, and you can make them too!

    Hi Janice,
    These sound delicious! Do you happen to know how many calories are in each ball? I’m not one to count calories constantly, but I find with these kind of things (small, good-for-you, and easy to grab on your way out the door!) that I will probably eat more than I should because they’re healthy, therefore the calories shouldn’t count! 🙂

    Thank you!

    I’ve tried making peanut butter snacks but never with quinoa! I can’t wait to try this.

    Other things I might add to it are some flax seeds and dried fruit. It’s great for a pre-workout!
