4 Recipes to Upgrade Your Road Trip

This delish post is brought to you by our friends and Feedback sponsors, Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut Butter!

The sun it out, school’s wrapping up, and we know what that means: It’s time to hit the road!

Summer wouldn’t be complete without a road trip or two – and a road trip wouldn’t be complete without delicious, snackable treats to fuel the journey and keep everyone in the car feeling happy.

On a long ride, there’s nothing better than a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth. Check out these four delish treats you can whip up in a flash and have on-hand for when the craving hits for something better than gas station snacks!

Flaxseeds, peanut butter, shredded coconut, and old-fashioned oats are just a few of the tasty ingredients you’ll find in these delish No Bake Energy Balls that we got to try at our Feedback festival in Austin. They’re quick to whip up and make for an easy-to-eat snack when you’re on the go!

For a sweet start to your trip, we love these Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars. Whole, rolled oats paired with chocolate morsels and tasty peanut butter make for the perfect bite. Plus, they only need to bake for about 20 minutes, so if you’re on a last-minute trip, they’ll fit right into your timetable.

What’s better than a salty pretzel covered in sweet toppings? These Peanut Butter Pretzel Rods only take a few minutes to create and are so easily customized to your tastes. All you need are three ingredients, and a tiny bit of patience! Bonus: After getting to sample these in Austin at Feedback, we are pretty sure they’ll make sitting in traffic way more tolerable!

If you’re looking for another bar to try, these Crispy Peanut Butter Chocolate Popcorn Squares are out of this world. We love how marshmallows are the sweet, sticky glue keeping bites of popcorn, peanut butter and chocolate together. Note: These sweet bites need a bit of time in the fridge to set before you hit the road.
