Everyone needs to snack, it’s just a fact. It’s easy to grab something from the cupboard, but sometimes you want more than that. I love everything peanut butter, apart from Ben and Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream, which for some reason didn’t go down too well. So, I thought why not find some healthy snacks with peanut butter that I can try out someday (soon).
Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
These peanut butter cookies look delicious. What’s more is that they are only 99 calories each and don’t contain oil, eggs, flour or sugar.
Two-Ingredient Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream
If you ever have a few over-ripe bananas lying around – this always happens to me every so often and I never have any idea what to do with them – this recipe is perfect. It only requires 4 over-ripe bananas and 2 tbsps of peanut butter.
Quinoa Peanut Butter Snack Balls
Quinoa has really grown in popularity recently. It’s usually used as a substitute for rice, or as a salad topper, but I’ve seen quinoa porridge so I’m sure these will be tasty. Each ball contains only 36 calories and nearly 2g of protein, which I think is pretty amazing. The recipe only requires 5 ingredients and seems pretty easy; I think these peanut butter balls would make a perfect on-the-go snack.
3 Ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Mug Cake
So, I’ve got a thing for mug cakes – I mean they take less than two minutes to cook, what’s not to love about that? This recipe only uses 1 egg, peanut butter and granulated sugar, though I’d suggest replacing the sugar with a natural sweetener. They also have an eggless peanut butter mug cake you can try out.
Healthy No-Bake Triple Peanut Butter Bars
These triple peanut butter bars are probably more of a dessert than a snack, but I see no reason why they wouldn’t make a great snack. This recipe is ideal if you are looking for a tasty vegan or gluten free snack. What’s more is that it only takes 20 minutes to make.
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
These 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies only contain maple syrup, salt and, of course, peanut butter. It’s pretty much just baked peanut butter, which sounds amazing if you’re a massive peanut butter fan like me.
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cups
Think Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but with only clean ingredients. These peanut butter cups contain dark organic chocolate, organic peanut butter, and coconut oil, making them perfect for gluten-free and vegan diets.
Hopefully, you’ve found a recipe here that you can get your hands on. Remember, these are healthy snacks with peanut butter so they are absolutely guilt-free, though don’t go crazy….
