Who doesn’t love buckeye balls!? Am I right!? 

In our family, buckeyes balls are the food of life. Well, maybe that’s a little extreme. They are, however, a dessert that gets demolished so quickly you wish you had made dozens more.

Hence, I created a healthier version of peanut butter buckeye balls last year. Less sugar and butter involved? Yes, please.

As always, these peanut butter buckeye bars were made out of laziness. Don’t judge; you’ll thank me.

We entered exciting, new territory for VB earlier this month when we had our own table at a Gluten-Free fair! Oh boy, I knew I needed to make some treats to pass out, and they needed to be (A) obviously delicious and (B) easy to make.

Buckeyes. Definitely our buckeyes fit that bill. However, the thought of dipping each individual buckeye ball in chocolate filled me with dread. That would be a LOT of work.

So out of laziness, I attempted to make these buckeye bars. Guys, I am never going back to the other way. Seriously, like NEVER again.

I’m trying my best to not scream at you through this computer screen. But listen, YOU HAVE TO TRY BUCKEYE BARS.

If you have peanut allergies, try this recipe with sunflower butter instead. These bars are also gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan friendly, not to mention lower in sugar compared to a traditional buckeye!

A normal buckeye ball recipe calls for 1-2 sticks of butter. This peanut butter buckeye bars recipe calls for a total of 3 Tablespoons.

OMG.

Seriously, have I convinced you?

      I personally do not. You are more then welcome too if you would like though. My husband wouldn’t complain as he likes everything better when its cold. 🙂

        How long do you think these would stay fresh? I like to make several desserts and spread them throughout Christmas week for different family gatherings.

          At least a week I would say, if not more around 1.5-2 weeks. Honestly, they go so quickly in our house I haven’t really gotten a chance to ‘TEST’ out how long they really do last, but that would be my guess. 🙂

            Thanks! I’m guessing they’ll go fast too, that’s why I have to split these things up before I go 🙂
