Peanut Butter Banana Balls

It’s snack time!

Snacks are super important, especially with back-to-school time just around the corner. There are times when I come home from school absolutely starving and all I can think is FOOD!  During those times it’s nice to have healthy snacks to reach for instead of the chips, candy bars, and cupcakes others are eating at the time.  Some of my after school snacks include: yogurt/cottage cheese with fruit, toast with peanut butter and banana, a slice of some homemade healthy dessert, and as long as these Peanut Butter Banana Balls are around, they make a perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

This is one of the simplest recipes on this blog.  All you need is peanut butter, a banana, applesauce, kashi go lean cereal (or another favorite), and rolled oats.  Yep, that’s it.  Mash the banana with the peanut butter and applesauce.  Measure the cereal and oats.  Mix it all together.  Stick it in the fridge for a bit and then roll into cute little balls.  Pop ’em into your mouth and enjoy the deliciousness.

Yay for Peanut Butter Banana Balls!  You so want these as your afterschool/afterwork snack!


Peanut Butter Banana Balls
  • 1 1/2 cups kashi go-lean cereal (or try your favorite type)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 large bananas (1/2 cup mashed)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (you may need slightly more or less depending on size of bananas)
Measure cereal and rolled oats into a large bowl.  In another bowl, mash banana.  Add peanut butter and applesauce and mix until incorporated.  Add banana mixture to dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Place mixture in a container and chill in fridge for at least an hour.  Once chilled, roll into balls.  Store in fridge until serving time.  Recipe makes about 25 small balls.

    I really like your site and I think it’s great promoting healthy and delicious recipes. I liked this one because it’s an easy, on the go food but problem is I don’t like peanut butter. Is there anything I can substitute for it? Cheers xx.

      First of all, thank you! Second, my guess is you could substitute the peanut butter for any other nut butter or sunbutter. Hopefully that helps!
