Easy peanut butter balls are a simple recipe to make and packed with protein! This healthy peanut butter balls recipe makes for a quick and healthy snack for back to school.
My family loves making and eating healthy peanut butter balls! Sometimes when we want to make them more of a dessert, I’ll even dip them in some dark chocolate.
You can get fancy with them and even drizzle with some more peanut butter by just quickly warming up your Peanut Butter. Since these are for snacking, we make a batch and then store them in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days. They rarely last 2 days in this house, yum!
NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER BALLS
Now that school is back in session (homeschool too!) we’re looking for easy, healthy snacks to enjoy during the day. This easy peanut butter balls recipe is perfect to hold us over until lunch or dinner time. They are a great snack that is portable and tasty too. We like making them oatmeal peanut butter balls since it’s packed with fiber and filling! They are pretty healthy peanut butter balls packed with good for you ingredients.

If you prefer to grind up your flax seeds you can do that also. We suggest that you purchase your flaxseeds whole and grind them at home. Once flaxseeds are ground up they lose a lot of their nutrients. If you’re going for ground flaxseed always grind before using. To grind flaxseeds we use our highspeed blender, but you can also use something as simple as a coffee grinder or food processor.
Since my daughter is a mini chef, she likes not just to eat them, but also help make them. When she makes them they, have much more chocolate chips. 😉 There’s nothing more fun than making a recipe with your hands. Best of all you can eat right off your fingers when you’re done, ha!
You can get as creative as you like with the ingredients.
Optional add-ins we’ve tried:
- White Chocolate Chips
- Dried Cranberries
- Freeze Dried Bananas
- Dried Strawberries
These can also be made with almond butter, sunflower butter, or even homemade chocolate hazelnut spread – yes I went there. 🙂 These are a fun treat for adults too, not just for kids!
