Peanut Butter Balls

 I love all things peanut butter.  So naturally, I love this super easy, somewhat healthy recipe for peanut butter balls.  There are so many variations of what ingredients you can add or subtract to make them just they way you like them.  Some add coconut, flax seed, malt powder, chocolate chips - whatever floats your boat.  I made the basic peanut butter ball.  My husband downed 4 immediately without even blinking.  Just promise me that you will use real peanut butter.  Thanks.

Peanut Butter Balls

1/2 cup real peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup powdered milk

Mix all ingredients with a spoon or spatula in a bowl.  Roll into small balls with your hands.  Place on a pan and chill in refrigerator until serving.

Don't laugh, but what is not-real peanut butter? Thanks!

I'm thinking not-real peanut butter is the kind with all of the sugar and additives? SO maybe use the 'all natural' kind that's just ground peanuts.

I have a question though- could I use raw oats instead of oatmeal or what type of oatmeal is in them?

So excited to try these!!

This totally reminds me of Marnies house growing up. Jeri always made these.

Yes, by real peanut butter I mean just peanuts and not all the other additives or preservatives. As for oatmeal, I used just regular oats but I'm sure raw would work. If you try it, Emily, let me know how it goes!
