PB&B (Peanut Butter & Berry) Bites ~ Recipe ReDux
Whether you pack your lunch in a bento box, a brown bag or a retro cartoon character lunch box, don’t forget the bars and bites. Small squares can pack nutrition into a sweet or savory taste.

In the morning, simplicity is key. Unless preparations begin the night before, lunch and corresponding snacks are thrown together – but without sacrificing taste or nutrition. Having key ingredients on hand make that morning whirlwind still result in a balanced [lunch]box. Here is one of my favorite ways to jazz up lunch with two kitchen staples – nut butters and fruit! These bites make a great mid-morning or afternoon snack (depending on when you snack). It’s a nice combination of sweet, nutty, crunchy and tart (depending on the type of fruit you choose).
PB&B (Peanut Butter & Berry) Bites
Makes 1 serving
2 sheets of graham crackers
1 Tbsp. peanut butter (any nut or seed butter will do)
2 Tbsp. fruit*
*The recipe pictured uses fresh raspberries. Other great options include other fresh berries, sliced apples or pears, or dried fruit, like cranberries or apricots.
Divide each graham cracker sheet into 4 pieces along dotted lines. Spread a small amount of peanut butter on each cracker. For each pair of graham crackers, line one side with fruit and close the other side on top, peanut butter side in.
A note when lunch packing: PB&B Bites do better in a small, hard snack container. When using the bag picture above, these bites can become delicious little crumbs depending on the other contents of your lunch (if this happens, sprinkle over low or non-fat yogurt and enjoy).
