No bake bites are a guaranteed hit for post-school, afternoon snack, mid-morning snack, breakfast, dessert…basically everything. They are the perfect bite of quality fuel and nutrition. They can be loaded with tons of fat and sugar, but mine are not. I have a little secret ingredient – can you guess it? Have you heard me mention American Dream Nut Butter? 😉 If you have been around me, my Instagram or Facebook feed, or blog at all, you have heard me rave and rave over these nut butters.
We had an evening where we didn’t have much going on after school. I knew the kids would be able to come home, and we could just be home – doing homework, hanging out, enjoying the unseasonably warm weather, and just enjoying each other. I wanted to bless the kids with a fun treat as they walked in the door. Some days the kids are full of energy after a great day at school. Other days they are exhausted. My daughter is her mother’s daughter – high achieving, perfectionist, type A. She can get overwhelmed and overly intense, so I like to bless her with little things that will ease her mind and mood. Bless her. She is only 12. I hate it that she takes life so seriously, but then again, I was the same way. Dang it.
Anyway, we all love no bakes, and like I said, they serve so many purposes. So it’s a treat – but also a practical treat. 😁 I perused my stock of nut butters to see what might inspire me, and S’mores jumped out at me. We have been doing a lot of actual s’mores lately with all of our bonfires, so I knew I had the chocolate and graham crackers to add as add-ins. And this particular flavor comes with mini marshmallows already in it. So perfection! Also, because the S’mores nut butter already comes with chocolate and sweet treats mixed in, I didn’t need to add as much sweetener, making this lower in sugar and fat – as I used lower fat add-ins with the graham crackers and just a half a tablespoon of mini chocolate chips – just enough to add about 3-4 per bite – giving just the right amount of chocolate.
Without further ado here is the recipe…
