Happy National Peanut Butter Month! Peanut Butter Maple Bites


Did you know November is National Peanut butter month?! When a new month starts, my  friend blogs about that months important  dates to remember- and this one is a biggie! So, in honor of the very special nut…this post.

I found these on Pinterest. They taste fabulous! Like you’re sneaking a treat, but they’re not that bad for you! Score! So yes, try it, I know you will love them. Recipe at end.

I have fun ideas of putting in mint chips, M&M’s or no chocolate at all! Super yummy! I didn’t have honey, it’s a hot commodity in our home. So we used maple syrup instead so we call them ‘Peanut Butter Maple Bites.

Step one: mix all ingredients together


Step two: allow your kids to sneak bites of the ‘dough’ and make faces.


I absolutely LOVE having Emma in the kitchen with me. I want to instill a love of creating. However, she refuses to eat what she makes. Weird right? Fortunately, she’ll eat these.

Third: Roll into balls:


Refrigerate for about 1 hr., then tada!


They were Emma’s ‘treat’ if she ate her lunch today. She did. 🙂


Hope you have a great Friday!

Recipe:  1 cup oatmeal 1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter) 1/3 cup honey 1 cup coconut flakes 1/2 cup ground flaxseed 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 1 tsp vanilla
