These peanut butter and chocolate bites are brought to you by Ryvita as we are part of their “revoluncheonary” team. We want to share with you family friendly Ryvita recipes that children will love to make and eat.
RyVita is looking to liven up your lunchtimes by encouraging you to share your #MyVita creation with them and to encourage you they have a fab competition where one lucky winner will receive £1000 worth of John Lewis vouchers and with 10 runners up receiving a hamper full of Ryvita goodies. Share yours either on twitter to @ryvita, on their facebook page or on Instagram with @ryvita. Do not have a creation to share, don’t worry you can still enter.
We have seen recipes for peanut butter bites using oats, but we wanted something with a bite and crunch, which is where Ryvita comes in. You can keep you peanut and chocolate no cook bliss bites for up to 4 days in the fridge, but they will not last that long. Our 12 last two days!
Peanut butter and chocolate bites
- 1 cup crushed Fruit Crunch Ryvita (4 crispbreads)
- 1/8 cup ground chia seed
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup ground peanuts to roll the balls in (optional)
How to make Peanut butter and chocolate bites
Mix together your peanut butter, vanilla extract and honey in a large bowl.
Crush your Ryvita. We placed ours in a large bag and just crunched it by hand.
Add your crushed Ryvita, ground chia seeds, chocolate chips to your peanut butter mixture and stir.
Roll dough into golf-ball sized (or slightly smaller) balls. To try and ensure we get the same sized balls we use an icecream scoop.
You can then coat your Peanut butter and chocolate bites in crushed peanuts if you choose, before placing on parchment and refrigerating.
These can be eaten at room temp but we really like them stored in the fridge. They will keep for up to a week, but I am not promising they will last that long!
These Peanut butter and chocolate bites pack a real punch with lots of protein from the peanut butter and fibre from the chia seeds and rye, making them perfect for taking on walks or as a quick pick me up. Rye is a great whole grain that is low in saturated fat and high is B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and iron.
