Tropical Peanut Butter Balls Make a Tasty and Healthy Snack

Looking for a family snack that’s quick, made from wholesome ingredients and easy to customize? Look no further because Peanut Butter Balls have it all!

These no-bake snack bites combine oats, honey, peanut butter and any other fun additions your heart desires for a snack that’s as healthy or as decadent as you want it to be.


There are so many amazing recipes for these tasty morsels on the Kraft What’s Cooking website, but I decided I wanted to create my own, and after seeing the recipe for Fruit And Nut Peanut Butter Snack Bites, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to use for my own version of peanut butter balls.

And so my Tropical Peanut Butter Balls were created!

By using some wholesome and delicious ingredients to up the nutritional value of these fun energy balls, I was able to create a treat that made a perfect after school snack or quick breakfast for my boys on a busy morning.

I used ground flax seed for extra fibre along with a delicious blend of tropical fruit and nuts for a treat with tons of flavour that would also provide my boys with extra energy.


Since these energy balls are so easy, there’s really no limit to what can be done with them. In fact, as much as I liked making this healthy tropical version, I’m already planning another batch. This time I’m thinking Rocky Road Peanut Butter Balls using chopped Baker’s Semisweet Chocolate, walnuts, coconut and mini marshmallows!

Find other great Kraft Peanut Butter Snack Bites Recipes on the Kraft Canada website and see which one is most likely to tempt your family’s taste buds.

And if you want to make something a little more decadent with your peanut butter, my classic Butterscotch Confetti Squares are always a hit!

From coffee-infused creations to bright sprinkle and chocolate treats, it won’t be hard to find a mouth-watering recipe to try. And if none of them are just right for you, then try making your own variation! With three wholesome ingredients and the add-ins of your choice, snacking has never been easier!
