Snacks for Kids: Peanut Butter Bites Recipe

Busy Parent Fitness-Choy-Blog-Snacks for Kids Peanut Butter Bites-Recipe

A peanut butter kid’s snack recipe, containing protein, fibre, and healthy fats with Omega-3. My kids LOVE them! It’s a great alternative to those pre-packaged cereal bars.

This post included a collaboration with Wren Kitchens and their #LittleKitchen campaign, to encourage kids to become more involved in the kitchen, and eat healthy food. Please see the end of this post for full disclosure. All views and this recipe are my own. 

Even though I’m a Personal Trainer, and I talk about healthy food to my kids all the time, they’re still fairly reluctant to eat fibrous foods like vegetables, and fruit. They’re under 7 years old, so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping they’ll grow out of it soon.

In the meantime, this kid’s snack is an easy way to give them a little fruit, fibre, and the dates can have a little laxative effect, to help keep things regular. 🙂

This recipe is easy to make, and not that messy, so why not have the little ones help you out in the kitchen? They’ll have great fun rolling out the mixture (as it feels a bit like Play Doh), and will hopefully be more likely to eat it.

  • Time to prepare: 10 minutes.
  • Serving size: 2 shapes
  • Makes: 10 servings

Ingredients

    • 140g Smooth Organic Peanut Butter
    • 30g Skimmed Milk Powder
    • 30g Milled Flaxseed
    • 10g Organic Cacao Powder
    • 75g Medjool Dates
    • 1T Honey

#Tablespoon

Directions

  1. Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Divide into 20 evenly sized pieces—make into interesting shapes by hand, or use a chocolate mould (I used a silicone one to make the little men).
  3. Leave the the shapes in the mould, and pop in the fridge for an hour (the cold makes them easier to press out of the mould).
  4. Enjoy!
