Quick, easy, tasty snacks are ALWAYS something that I am trying to create.

peanut butter jelly balls

When it comes to snacking, I look for something with quality ingredients that isn’t too hearty (after all, it is a snack and not a meal!) with great flavor that Brian and I will both enjoy.  Therefore, I created Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Bites!

These bites are extremely simply (all you need is a food processor!) and only require three ingredients.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Bites


  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup dried cherries


  1. Combine all ingredients in the food processor.
  2. “Process” until the mixture forms a doughy texture.
  3. Roll the mixture into 16 small balls.
  4. Store in the fridge and enjoy for quick snacks!!

That’s it!!! There you have 16 little balls that are a great pre-workout or mid-afternoon snack.  The dried dates and cherries will give you a nice little carbohydrate energy boost to get you going and the fat and protein in the peanuts will help you feel satisfied until your next meal.
