Healthy Raw Peanut Butter Balls

There is something so incredibly satisfying when I create something, taste it, and then want to devour the whole thing.  Don’t worry, I don’t.  But it makes me want to take photos and post a blog immediately.  I restrain myself from doing that though.

But, I must admit, it happened again when I made these raw peanut butter balls.

While I am working up a sweat on the treadmill, my mind often drifts to my love affair with food.  What can I make that is pleasing to the palate, and something that I can share with all of you?  Kona is off to the side, working on a bone that I filled with peanut butter.  Now, I think about peanut butter.  I want to take a very large spoon, grab the jar of peanut butter and slowly, lick it off the spoon.  As I tell myself to maintain, I decide that later I am making something peanut butter.

Oh that reminds me, I am reviewing the use of the hoo-rag.  I wore it on the treadmill.  Look for the review coming up this week, and a giveaway to receive one too.

Raw Healthy Peanut Butter Balls Recipe

Back to peanut butter.  These raw treats are filled with nothing but goodness.  They are addicting though. I wonder if I can double the batch and freeze them.  Then take them out one at a time and pop them when that peanut butter craving hits me.  Which is often, I must say.

Check them out.

  1. I had to laugh a little when you talked about your love affair with food! This recipes sounds so good. I am going to have to try this and keep it around for snacks. I think they would be great for car trips! Thanks for sharing.

  2. These look like fantastic balls of YUM! I have PB cravings too. Just printed this and hope to make it when the protein balls that I made this morning are gone. My recipe is similar, but I used almonds and no powdered milk. I love the sounds of this. So glad I saw this at FFF. Enjoy your weekend.

    • Hi Jean. Let me think about what you can use as a sub for the dry milk. Perhaps crushed graham cracker or increase the amount of wheat germ. I don’t know how it will taste though. So if you do sub it with something let me know how they turn out

I love hearing from my readers!
