Eat Clean Recipe :: Gluten Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Bites

Share


Peanut Butter and Jelly...those words just scream "childhood" to me! I'm not a big sandwich person but I LOVE PB&J sandwiches! Scott & I were talking about them a few weeks ago and decided to make them into bites to take on our hike with us. They are the perfect cravings buster and great to give you a little boost of energy (just don't eat all of them!). Not to mention, these are perfect for kids. Who said that PB&J had to be a sandwich? Put some of these in their lunch box and mix it up a bit - I bet they even like these better! They are easily made gluten free by using gluten free oats.

PB&J BITES

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup gluten free quick cooking oats (or rolled oats - see below)
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 1/4 cup organic raisins
1 1/2 - 2 tsp vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)

*If using rolled oats or extra thick rolled oats add approx 1 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce.




Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor
2. Add 2-3 Tbsp warm water to mixture and pulse a few more times until ingredients start sticking together
3. Spoon out onto parchment paper
4. Chill until ready to eat



Makes approx 25 Balls.

Enjoy!

  1. Would quinoa flakes work? I haven't been buying oats, if they are gluten free it's ok?

    1. I've never used quinoa flakes before! It seems like they would work though - you might have to adjust the other ingredients though. Let us know if it turns out!

  2. Should these be kept in fridge to store or counter top ok. How long do they last?

    1. Definitely put these in the fridge! They should last for about a week (although ours never last more than a day or 2!).
