The biggest obstacle when in trying to eat healthy is of course the temptation of snacking. Choosing the right snack to dive into when you’re running low on energy can be just as important as making sure you put on the right shoes before trudging out in the snow or picking which Netflix option to binge watch next. These Peanut Butter Balls are packed with delicious peanut flavor and will give you the mid-day kick you need! (Bonus - your kids will love them too!) Other healthy snacks disguised as sweets that we love: Zucchini Brownies, and Homemade Granola!
What you’ll need:
- Mixing bowl
- Raw oats
- A bottle of organic honey
- A nice big can of creamy peanut butter
- Optional: raisins
- Hand ladle for mixing
Note: Choosing the right peanut butter is essential, and an all-natural brand would work great with this recipe and give your body a healthy boost of vitamin E and potassium without all the extra fat and additional sweetening. Pairing the peanut better, raw oats, and honey with raisins adds even more flavor and nutrients to an already power-infused treat.
First measure out a cup of oats and pour them into the mixing bowl. Next, add three full tablespoons of honey. If you are a sweet tooth, you may want to add more honey. Alternatively, you could use fresh molasses. Mix well with a ladle. Then, add peanut butter and raisins until the mixture is thick and gooey.
Next, take a table spoon-full of the mixture and rub it in the palm of your hand in a circular motion to make a round bite-sized peanut butter ball. Repeat until you have a plate full of scrumptious peanut butter balls. Finally, place the plate in the freezer and let it sit. After a few hours, dig in!
