Peanut Butter Balls

Because we struggle to get Kelty to eat meat and eggs, I am always looking for ways to supplement his protein intake. I stumbled across a recipe for "Energy Balls" at I tweaked the recipe a bit; changing some of the proportions and ingredients to come up with this "Kelty Approved" version.

Peanut Butter Balls
Crunchy, bite-sized snack packed with protein and vitamins

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Balls
1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Chopped Raisins
1 Tablespoon Finely Shredded Carrots
1 Tablespoon Granola (I use Cascadian Farms Granola Cereal)
Honey (just a tiny squirt)
Ground Flax-seed Meal (a little sprinkle)

Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix with a spoon. Scoop out a tiny portion and roll between your palms to form a little ball ... I make mine a little smaller than a grape. If it's too "wet and sticky" try adding a little more granola, carrot, or flax-seed ... they should roll easily into ball. This recipe will make about 8-10 little Peanut Butter Balls.

These snacks are best served shortly after making (within an hour) or the granola looses its crunch. Don't worry ... these aren't messy treats! We've yet to have a mess with these ... they go right from the plate to the mouth!

Don't forget to lick the spoon!


  1. Your directions are Awesome, that's how I measure all the time :)

  2. These peanut butter balls look terrific - my kids would love them.

    Thank you so much for your sweet words about my blog - I am really glad you like it. I am also glad your family liked the chicken noodle soup, I hope you all feel better soon.
