If you follow along on my Instagram Stories you know that our family loves snack balls. I’ve been making the same snack bite recipe for over a year and it’s time to switch things up a bit. I based this M&M snack bite recipe off my previous recipe with a few simple and tasty changes.

I also changed up the way of preparing them because rolling balls can take ALOT of time, and busy mamas need as much time savers as we can get. So instead of tediously rolling a container full of little balls you can quickly and easily slice a bunch of tiny cubes.

M&M Snack Bites. These snack bites are an easier version of snack balls. They're a healthy snack for the whole family with ingredients like peanut butter, prunes and chia seeds.

This energy bite recipe is super simple to make. You don’t burn out your processor and make a bunch of sparks like I did – oops! So make sure you soak the prunes so it’s easier for your food processor to chop them. After the prunes are soaked and chopped you just mix all ingredients together, let it sit in a pan to firm up a bit, and then slice into convenient cubes that the whole family can snack on, that’s it!
