Healthy Peanut Butter Balls are a healthy and delicious snack, or even a quick breakfast on-the-go, featuring one of my favorite foods of all time...peanut butter!

Recipe Ingredients for Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

1 cup peanut butter, natural is preferred (chunky or creamy)
2 tablespoons honey (or agave nectar)
1 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed or wheat germ
2 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut

Recipe Directions for Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

  1. Heat peanut butter and honey in the microwave until easily mixed, about 15-20 seconds. Stir until blended.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix oats, flaxseed and coconut (if using) until combined.

  3. Add peanut butter mixture to oat mixture and stir until incorporated. (Mixture may seem a little dry at first...just keep mixing).

  4. Form a rounded tablespoonful of the combined mixture into a ball and place on a plate. Repeat until all mixture is used. Now, if you do not want to coat the balls, skip to step 6.

  5. Roll each ball in whatever coating suits your preference. Cocoa powder, powdered sugar, wheat germ, cinnamon sugar and chopped peanuts are some ideas.

  6. Chill the plate of balls in the refrigerator to set for at least an hour, or overnight.
