Peanut butter and jelly: the most infamous kid-food found in lunch boxes everywhere.
I’m making PB&Js a little more fun with these 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter and Jelly Bites. These are the perfect bite-sized snack for little ones and you can substitute any dried fruit and any nut or seed butter to create your own versions.
With only three ingredients, it’s not hard to make! You take your dried fruit and chop in the Food Processor. Then you can roll the fruit into little bite-sized balls. These are going to be a little sticky, so while you are melting the peanut butter you can pop them in the freezer.
After trying my hand at making truffles dipped in chocolate, I can tell you peanut butter is like a dream to melt. So easy! Drop each dried fruit ball in the melted peanut butter and tap the excess off. You can then roll it in crushed graham crackers or Nilla wafers.
dried fruit = the jelly
peanut butter = well, peanut butter
graham crackers = the bread
voila! Peanut butter and Jelly Bites!
I would probably store these PB&J Bites in the fridge or at least out of warm places. If the peanut butter melts, it sure wouldn’t be a kid-friendly food anymore!
Let me know if you try any other variations!
- Chop the raisins in the food processor.
- Roll the raisin mixture into small bite-sized balls and place in the freezer.
- In a saucepan, melt the peanut butter over medium low heat.
- Drop each dried fruit ball into the peanut butter and pick up with a fork. You can tap off the excess peanut butter.
- Drop the peanut butter balls into the crushed graham crackers to coat.
- Keep in a cool place.
