Healthy No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Need a real-food dessert to bring to a party? These are ALWAYS a hit at parties because because they are just THAT GOOD! They’re a staple dessert in our home and both of my older kids can make them all by themselves because it’s a no-bake, no fuss (I didn’t say no mess 😉 ) recipe. This recipe is also a perfect way to get kids in the kitchen…kids are much more compliant to cook when it’s something they can’t wait to get their mouths on!

I love how these are made with all clean, unprocessed ingredients…and have I told you how much our family LOVES peanut butter? We love it to the point of weakness, but I can’t complain about our love affair because peanuts are a legume made in the dirt of our earth. I’m much happier to have it be that than a factory engineering and manufacturing processed, health-deteriorating foods. Any other peanut butter lovers out there??? Tell me your fav desserts in the comments and I’ll work on getting more PB recipes on here. Moral of the story…you can expect more peanut butter recipes to be appearing over time.

It’s really a miracle to me how my daughter Katie, 8, no longer has a peanut allergy! I didn’t know people with peanut allergies can become a recovered peanut allergic person. 😉 To see more about the ailments Katie has recovered from eating whole foods over a period of time, don’t forget to check out my About Page. So grateful.

As I look over the ingredient’s list on this recipe, I also notice how 5/8 ingredients I purchase at Costco! :0  If you want to know what other 100 clean-eating items I get there and their prices, you’ll definitely want to snatch my

Costco Cheat Sheet!

I’ll show you all the items I save a ton of money on too!

I hope you enjoy these bites as much as we do!!! (Mwah!)

    Um? Am I missing something? Is there supposed to be peanut butter in them?

        Oh good! I even had my daughter read it because I get a little spacey! Looks yummy! I’m so glad you are here! I have loved 100 Days Of Real Food for years! It’s nice to get more variety and someone else who is passionate about this! Thanks for speaking out about such an important topic!

          Thank you, Buffy! Yes, 100 Days is great! She is one of the people who inspired me to get going and share my story. 🙂 And yes! I love finding others who are as passionate about whole foods as we are! You get me, and I get you. Feels amazing. 🙂

    What can you substitute for coconut? I don’t like it at all.

    • Laura Clark November 16, 2016 at 10:40 pm - Reply

      Thanks for reaching out, Cindy! It’s always an option to not add in the coconut at all, but if you’d like to replace it with another ingredient, I’d recommend sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, raisins, or any other dried fruit. Hope that helps! 🙂
