    These look wonderful! I can’t wait to make some! By the way, I think you’re heading to Maine soon! Have a safe trip and maybe see you at the B2B10K!!

    I routinely consume PB n J rice cakes on rides in excess of 3 hours. I’ll have to try these. I do wonder how they would hold up after multiple hours in a cycling jersey pocket. I will probably wrap them in wax/aluminum paper like I do with the rice cakes. Thanks!

    I am so going to make this! As soon as I purchase quick cook oats. I only have steel cut oats at home. But who doesn’t love PB&J? Plus this is a no bake recipe. Heaven for some one looking for treats in the summer, no oven required. I’m so excited. Thanks for posting, Monica.

    Ok, I screwed up. I rarely read blogs and I never post comment; today I was captured by peanut butter.
    And now I’m getting e mail notification of all your fabulous comments.
    Please dear lord, make it stop.
    Posting this without checked boxes in hopes that the course of history I charted for myself earlier can be changed.

    OMG!!! So delicious. I had everything in my kitchen and so I made them for a snack. My 9 year-old daughter loved them (called them delicious) and my hubby (who hates anything remotely healthy) said he liked them! Definitely a winner. I have a batch in my fridge to eat tomorrow. Thanks for sharing! :)

    I love love love marmalade 😀 I have since I was a kid when my nan used to make me marmalade sandwiches! You should try it ;-D

    At the moment I am compiling a list of things to make that are healthy for September (maybe late August), when I go back to University and these will be perfect!

    These look delicious! I am going to try them tonight for sure! I made your peanut butter protein cookies recipe that I found on your site and they were a big hit. My daughter loved them, you would never know there was the protein powder in them. Thanks!

    Do you think PB2 would work well in this recipe? oh, oh – how about hazelnut pb? Yum! I’m going to try these! Thanks.

    Oh man I wish I had looked at this last night. Now I’ll have to wait 12 hours until I’m home to make up a batch.

    Thanks for this! I made two kinds: peanut butter/nutella and soynut butter/strawberry jam. I subbed flax meal for protein powder in both and just threw some old fashioned oats in the food processor to soften them because I didn’t have protein powder or quick cook oats. They’re delicious anyway!

    Mine don’t look anything like your pictures and are an ooey gooey mess, I keep checking back to see if I missed something, but its just 2 tablespoons of everything right? Leave it to me to screw up something so simple.

      Yes, 2 Tb. of everything. Did you include the protein powder? I tried this recipe without them and it was a sticky mess too. Spray your hands with non-stick spray to roll them then roll them in chia seeds or coconut or something to help with stickiness. Also freezer is better than fridge.
