~ PB&J just got less messy (and totally portable!) A simple, fast, wholesome, no-bake snack bite that tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Perfect for kids (and adults, too)! ~
We have some really exciting news. Like … we apologize now if our cheers and squeals hurt your ears.
No, really … we’re just sooo excited! (“And we just can’t hide it!” … Uh-huh … are you singing “I’m So Excited” in your head? ‘Cause we are!)
So … what’s the big news?
Well, we’re SO thrilled to share with you that we were invited to do a guest post (our very first ever!) for a food blogger that we both really, really admire! It’s seriously an honor!
Julia, from A Cedar Spoon, contacted us a few months ago and asked us if we’d be interested in writing a guest post while she spends some time with her gorgeous newborn son, Andrew. (And, of course, that’s got us just all excited, too – we’re so happy for Julia as she welcomes her second little guy into her wonderful family!)
At first we were a tiny bit nervous. (Julia’s blog is totally gorgeous and her recipes are delish … we’ve even featured her in our hot dips roundup!) But we got over that nervousness quick-quick and went right to work!
It didn’t take too long for us to decide that the recipe we created for Julia just had to be a Snack Bite recipe. In our little corner of the world, we’re amazed at how many times our friends tell us about how Snack Bites have saved their day.
It seems that people love these little gems of health and deliciousness for all sorts of reasons. They’re after-school, pre-soccer-game, post-workout, hectic-afternoon, and quick-on-the-way-to-work snacks. (Ummm … so, really anytime snacks.)
Since Julia already had a toddler at home, we knew the recipe needed to be something that he would love, too. And then it came to us …
Peanut Butter and Jelly!!!
Yes! Yes! That would be what we would share with Julia!
The quintessential childhood favorite, all rolled up in a neat-to-eat little bite.
We remember the days when our kiddos were teeny. When it came time for running errands (or running to playgroup) there was literally a 3.2837289-minute window once everyone was changed and dressed … to get out of the house. Otherwise, it was time for someone’s nap, or it was someone’s snack time, or maybe your energy was just zapped (well, actually that energy problem was kinda the norm …).
Introduce the PB&J Snack Bite.
And it’s here to save the day!
Creamy all-natural peanut butter, pure-fruit strawberry jelly, dried cranberries, flax, and just a hint of cinnamon combine to make the most wonderfully kid-friendly, snack-you-can-feel-good-about-giving-your-family Snack Bite!
Make ’em, freeze ’em, pull ’em out when you need ’em.
By the time you get to the grocery store and someone is starving (happens every time!), these beauties will be thawed – and you can just reach right in your bag and pull out the perfect snack to stop an energy-crash-tantrum in its tracks! Perfect for both salty and sweet cravings, too!
Just full of really good-for-you, wholesome ingredients that will keep you totally full and happy until you can get home! Lifesaver!
And while we’re talking PB&J … let’s be totally up front and honest … how many of you still enjoy a good, old-fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich from time to time? We’re not ashamed! Gretchen still eats one for lunch almost every day! Love ’em! If you’re with us on this one, definitely also check out our Strawberry-Peanut Butter Quesadillas!
