I am not sure where this recipe originated, it has been bounced around from momma to momma, but these yummy treats are great for new moms or any busy mom on the go. I made these for momma Michelle frequently while working with her. She got the recipe from her momma friend, Kylene, whose adorable little sweet baby Goldie is grinning on my website.

If you are careful about what brand peanut butter you use, you can control the sugar in these little bites. Personally, I like Smuckers, Michelle prefers Trader Joe’s peanut butter and almond butter.

I have also substituted raisins for prunes and doubled the peanut butter instead of adding almond butter. Virginia and her husband, Steve, really liked them this way. I’m sure there are many variations to this recipe it’s pretty basic allowing you to be as creative as you’d like.

Make them for a friend that’s having a baby soon, the momma will not be disappointed!
