Are you always looking for that quick snack to take with you when you’re on the go and always opting for a candy bar, bag of chips, or highly-processed snack bar? Well, we’ve created a great solution that only takes about 10 minutes to make, is filled with protein and healthy fats and also works great for a pre/post-workout snack! Peanut Butter Balls!!
4 Cups of Puffed Rice Cereal (we prefer using an organic brown rice puffed cereal)
1 Cup of All-Natural Peanut Butter
¾ Cup Honey or Agave
1 Cup Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1 Scoop of Vanilla Whey Protein (*for added protein)
¼ Cup Flax or Chia Seed
Place the shredded coconut into a bowl and put aside. In a large bowl mix together the agave/honey and peanut butter. Slowly add in one cup at a time the puffed rice cereal and mix together until combined. If the mixture seems a little dry, add a little more peanut butter. (You may want to do this if adding a scoop of protein powder.) Once all ingredients are combine, roll the mixture into 2” balls, once the ball is formed, roll it around into the shredded coconut so that all sides are covered. Place balls into a dish, cover and refrigerate. The Peanut Butter Balls will be good for 2 weeks when in an air-tight container and refrigerated. *Note: if you're having trouble forming the mixture in to balls, place the mixture in the fridge for 20 - 30 minutes to allow the peanut butter to harden some. Also, wet your hands before forming the mixture in to balls, you will want to do this with every other ball to help keep the mixture off your hands.
*Hint: If it’s a new jar with the oil on top, flip the jar over and let sit for about a half day and the oil will mix in to the rest of the peanut butter and there won’t be any need to stir!
