Easy Peanut Butter Bites by Lil J
Remember that super easy popsicle recipe I shared a couple months back?
Remember how I hate to cook?
Remember how my daughter absolutely adores it? No? Well, she does.
In another post on another day I’ll have to share how making meals together is completely obliterating her picky eating tendencies. But for today… A simple yummy treat that is seriously so simple you’ll laugh.
What you need:
Peanut Butter (we like Jif!)
Slice the bananas
Spread on some peanut butter
BOOM! You’re done.
If slicing is too hard to you, you can buy a banana slicer. They’re so handy. I hated how long it took to slice bananas and now… BOOM. Done in one swoop.
Ok, I kid, but seriously, the reviews on this thing made me buy one.
Easy right? What can I say. We like the simple life (with occasional trips to Disney). If this recipe is too complicated, you may want to try the new Jif Peanut butter Granola Bars instead.
They’re delicious and come in three flavors (my favorite is the chocolate)! There’s about 7-8g of protein in each bar and they’re now available nationwide. You can find out more about them here
And I can’t write a post about peanut butter without emphasizing something important to me. I have several dear friends with children who are dangerously allergic to peanut butter. When making or eating these yummy snacks please be aware of which of your friends may be allergic. Check with your child’s teacher to see if anyone in their class (or school) has an allergy. You don’t want to send something with your child that could harm another child. Our peanut butter-loving family prefers to eat these sorts of things after school.
That said, if you love peanut butter too and want to give these a try, leave a comment by October 19th 11:59pm! I’ll randomly draw 5 commenters to win a Jif Bars prize packs!

These look so yummy! What a great idea and so simple! I’m going to look for the bars at our stores. They look like a great one the go breakfast idea.
Looks tasty! I’ve taken to freezing my bananas in slices and as snacks or movie treats eating them with a smear of nutella! Delish
Can I just say I love you. I mean really.
So I’m reading this looking at your adorable girl… Thinking about how much my J would have loved this and how much I loved this pre-food allergies.
And then – boom (to quote you) your amazing heart mentioned that amazing warning about food allergies.
Thank YOU! It’s awareness like that that really matters. A lot of parents don’t think about it because.. Well, why would they!?
that reminder is the perfect one! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
And I’m glad you’re little chef can enjoy one of my old favorite foods!
Also, she needs to watch ratatouille!!!!
My little guy LOVES to cool with me too, and peanut butter is a definite favorite!

My kids love this simple snack too!
I’d really like to try any of these Jif bars! 🙂
I have never seen a banana slicer. What a neat quizmo. Love peanut butter and I guess just fed our daughter too much because it started messing with her stomach…best treat ever!! :>)
We love peanut butter in our house! Especially making peanut butter banana sandwiches 🙂
My daughter loves PBJ with banana sandwiches, but can only have them at the lunch tables. No snacks in classroom with any peanut traces at school. She would love peanut butter and chocolate combined.
Oh, it is simple to make. Peanut butter combines with banana is interesting, I will try to make it soon.
It looks delicious and it’s easy, but I don’t want kids to eat sweets
woa. The material is simple, easy to do
