The Bee's Knees Peanut Butter Power Balls

Peanut Butter. 



Personally, it doesn't get much better than that. 

One of my favorite snacks to make recently has been peanut butter balls. I make them a lot with the girls I nanny, because I can call them "cookies." These guys are way healthier than cookies, but the kids don't know that. So, ssshhh.....don't tell them!

This is a pretty simple recipe. You can also add some powdered milk to make the balls hold together a little better when out of the fridge ... I just didn't have any on hand when I actually threw this recipe together. 

The secret ingredient to these little balls is in the peanut butter - The Bee's Knees from PB & Co. This peanut butter already has honey mixed in, so it's extra delicious! You could try making these balls with any type of nut butter, though - and I bet flavored nut butters (ie: chocolate peanut butter) would be delicious as well. 

These little power balls are great because you can put whatever you want in them - coconut, nuts, raisins, dried fruit, chocolate chips....or you could get a little crazy and throw in some candy, like M&Ms. Although then these wouldn't be power balls (power balls give you HEALTHY energy!)....they'd be more like cookies.... but that's okay too!

Peanut Butter Power Balls
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup The Bee's Knees peanut butter
1-2 Tablespoons honey
Handful each of mix-ins of choice (I used coconut, chocolate chips, raisins and walnut pieces)

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. 
Roll mixture into balls, using anywhere from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of dough, depending on how big you'd like them to be. 
Store in the fridge to keep firm.
