Protein Packed Peanut Butter Balls

Sunday dinners with my family are always my favourite time of the week. We get to visit with each other, eat good food, and even share some laughs. Last weekend was no different – we got lucky and were spoiled with a delicious dessert that was far from a guilty pleasure, which is a huge bonus! So naturally, I stole the recipe from my uncle and tried it myself!

I love everything about these bite size snacks – they’re quick and easy to make, super healthy for you, and leave your taste buds in a frenzy….LOL in other words they’re DELICIOUS!! Not to mention they’re also a good choice for those busy days when you don’t have time to make a full breakfast. I will definitely keep my freezer stocked at all times with these protein-packed peanut butter balls 🙂 Enjoy!!

What You Need

  • 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter (almond butter works too)
  • 1 cup dry oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup dried raisins
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup organic raw cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips)
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds

Preparation:

Mix all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Really try to blend all the ingredients so that you end up with equal parts in each ball. Cover bowl with saran wrap and chill for about an hour.

When it’s done, line a baking sheet with some wax paper and form tablespoon-sized balls. Place them on the baking sheet and freeze for at least 3 hours. Once they’ve set, you can put them in a plastic bag and store them in your fridge or keep them in the freezer. Remember to take them out for a few minutes before serving as they will be a little on the hard side at first 🙂

Until next time my friends…
