PB&J Snack Bites


Tonight’s post is brought to you by the number 5, Sesame Street style. The number 5 can show up in many places. Like…

– The average number of members in an early 2000s boy band (Shoot, one even was named 5ive)
– The number of calluses currently visible on my hands
– Cinco de Mayo
– How many sides the Pentagon has
– How many ingredients are included in this recipe

Happy Belated Independence Day! This past weekend I drank beer and watched fireworks. That’s American. So is peanut butter and jelly.

In absolutely unrelated news, I chopped 31 seconds off my Helen time today, PR’d my Clean & Jerk today at 145lbs and PR’d my power clean at 150 by making an attempt to go higher on the C&J. Not bad for a Monday. Recipe time!

    These are so delicious! I shaped them into little balls. Next time I make them, I’m going to double or triple the recipe to have enough for the week for my fiancรฉ and I. We love these! Thanks for the great recipe!


  2. Absolutely loved these! And hubby is an even bigger enthusiast for them. He’s been craving peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches for months. He had them for lunch everyday before he diet but now he likes these better! We added a few teaspoons of coconut sugar as well as almond meal. Can’t wait to have these at our next family party along with our coconut walnut chocolate date balls
