Healthy Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites made with natural peanut butter and a sugar substitute that won’t send your glucose levels sky high. This no bake protein snack is a peanut butter lover’s delight!
Have you tried Skippy’s peanut butter bites? They’re these itty-bitty morsels that are a little bigger than the size of a pea.
They’re kind of hard like a dried pea too, but they’re made with a dense coating of peanut butter around a tiny pretzel in the middle.
My co-worker, Ann has been bringing them to work and goodness are they addictive! I’ve been limiting myself to just a couple, but I could easily grab a handful and eat them like popcorn!
I decided to make it my mission to make a healthier version of those delights with simple ingredients like natural peanut butter and dark chocolate, which are both decadent, but using healthier fats and making them larger will leave you satisfied with just one Peanut Butter Pretzel Bite instead of a half dozen!
These peanut butter balls are the perfect mid-afternoon snack! You’ll love the creamy filling mixed with a crunchy texture from the pretzels, and of course the chocolate coating is an added bonus!
These sweet and salty treats are great for summertime munching, especially when you have kids at home looking for a rib sticking satisfying treat!
