Review: Whole Foods PB&J Bites

Welcome to my first product review! Today I will be talking about Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Brand “PB&J Bites.”

To start off, I absolutely love anything Peanut Butter and Jelly flavored, so it is only natural that I would be completely obsessed with these bites. Anytime I go to Whole Foods I usually buy three or four bags at a time because I go through them so quickly!

These bites are Certified Gluten Free and also Vegan! They remind me of little pop tarts because they have a peanut butter outside with a jelly-filled inside. The outside is dusted with peanut flour and the bites melt in your mouth as you eat them. The salty-sweet combination of the peanut butter and jelly brings me back to my favorite childhood lunch.

These bites would be great for an in-between classes snack, a snack at the library, after a workout, or anywhere in between. I would 10/10 recommend you try the PB&J Bites because they are a great protein filled snack!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Energy Bites

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Energy Bites

These oatmeal bites are great for an on the go snack that can be brought anywhere! They store well in the fridge for about a week. This recipe can be modified to fit your dietary needs and you can mix in other add-ins such as dried fruit, coconut flakes, protein powder, and other seeds.

These bites only require 1 bowl to make and only take about 15 minutes! They can be easily made in a dorm because they do not require baking.

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups of Gluten Free Rolled Oats*

2 ½ Tbsp of Flaxseed meal

2 Tbsp of Chia Seeds

3 Tbsp of mini Chocolate Chips**

¾ cup of Peanut Butter (or any nut butter)

¼ cup of Maple Syrup

* You can substitute normal rolled oats if you do not have a gluten allergy.

** I use Enjoy Life mini chips because they are allergy friendly

Directions:

  1. Place dry ingredients into a bowl and mix until the oats, chia seeds, and flax seeds are thoroughly distributed.
  2. Add the maple syrup and peanut butter. Melting the peanut butter makes it easier to mix but it is not a crucial step.
  3. You can either put the mix in the fridge for a few minutes to harden it or roll it into balls by taking a spoonful of the mix and rolling it into a ball.
  4. Store in the fridge and enjoy!

Welcome to my Celiac Disease Guide!

Hello and welcome to C is for Celiac! I am a college student with Celiac Disease. I enjoy sharing recipes, experiences, product reviews, and guides to restaurants in the Gainesville, Florida area that you hopefully will find helpful. I post recipes that require a range of ingredients and appliances, but I’ve tried to make my recipes “dorm-friendly”- one-pot or one-pan meals, meals that can be made in a microwave, snacks that don’t require cooking, meal prep ideas to plan your week, and more. I hope you can find something that fits you best.

If you have any questions or comments, please let me know! Most of my recipes are plant-based because I am mostly plant-based (I have the occasional yogurt), so you will not find any meat or much dairy in my recipes, but feel free to modify them to fit your tastes and dietary needs. Enjoy 🙂Screen Shot 2018-09-19 at 9.53.12 PM.png
