Healthier Peanut Butter Balls
Happy New Year everyone!!
While most people are busy posting green or detoxifying recipes, I decided to go the opposite route and let everyone in on these delicious peanut butter balls. I didn’t have the need to scour the internet for healthy recipes for the new year because I was able to maintain a pretty normal eating schedule and didn’t overindulge as I have been known to do in the past. That’s pretty cool in my book.
I made these balls three times: once as a trial, once for Christmas Eve, and once for New Year’s Eve. They are quick to throw together and don’t contain added butter. They use maple syrup as a sweetener rather than the confectioners or cane sugar that I have seen in recipes. I did not make many changes to this recipe, so I am going to link you here to find it. The only alterations I did were to omit the cereal once because I am not a huge fan of the crispiness and I used Jif Natural peanut butter. She advises only using drippy, 100% natural peanut butter, but I found that the Jif brand with minimal ingredients worked just fine.
