As promised, one of my favorite peanut butter recipes! This recipe has a resemblance to eating PB straight out of the jar, but it’s even better. Plus, the few extra ingredients will make you feel a little less shamed than after moving a heaping spoonful of PB straight from the jar to your mouth.
These easy to prepare balls make delicious pick-me-up snacks. Since they are packed with protein, they are great to have kept on hand and in the refrigerator to await you after hitting the gym.
If you want to make them even more heavenly, coat the balls in some melted semi sweet chocolate chips. This is a peanut butter lover’s dream dessert.
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 Tpsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup shredded carrots
- 1/4 cup of Kashi GoLean cereal (or any other crunchy, not-to-sweet cereal you have lying around)
- 3 Tbsp of raisins
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the peanut butter. Place the peanut butter in a small bowl and warm in the microwave for 45 seconds. Use a spatula to help transfer the PB into the large bowl. Mix the ingredients. Let cool, and then roll into 1 to 2 inch balls.
