When I was little my mom use to make this for us. As kids we loved it.....and I remember my mom snacking on it too. Of course over the years this snack became a forgotten joy. Until, I saw someone blog about it a few months back and was like mmmmmmm!
So here it is: Peanut Butter Balls!
1 Jar of Peanut or Almond or Sunflower Butter
1 Cup of Rolled Oats
2 Tablespoons of Honey
Now from here you get to be creative. We mix different things in each batch based on what we have on hand.
Things we use:
Dates, Rasins, Walnuts, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Pecans, Ground Flax Seed, Grated Apple, Cranberry, ect.
Simply throw everything in a bowl and mix it up well. Then you can use your hands to make balls for easy grab and go or (if you don't feel like making balls like me) you can simply press it into the bottom of a dish and then cut out a wedge as you go. If we make them into balls they are usually a little smaller than a golf ball. Two of these balls will sustain me for about an hour and a half to two hours. This can be left on the counter covered up or you can place it in the refrigerator depending on what you mix into it. If it is going to sit out for more than 3 days I recommend putting it in the frig.
On a side a note. We do not use peanut butter as peanuts are known for carrying mold. And to top it off most of our bodies do not like peanuts, even if we don't get signs of an allergy, they most likely are not compatible to our bodies.
