Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

These super easy fiber-packed treats are perfect as an after-school or camp-day snack. (Bonus: they don’t need to be refrigerated.) For a more grown-up version, roll them in banana flour (made from freeze-dried bananas) or a little cocoa powder.

INGREDIENTS
3 cups Raisin Bran cereal
1 cup crispy brown rice cereal
⅔ cup all-natural smooth peanut butter (we like to make our own nut butters to help control the sugar content you can find the recipe here on our blog, nutty lifestyle.
½ cup chopped Farm Fresh Nuts Freshly Roasted Peanuts
5 Tbsp pure maple syrup
3 Tbsp dried cherries
½ cup freeze-dried bananas, or 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder for coating, optional

  1. Process the raisin bran and brown rice cereals, peanut butter, maple syrup, cherries and 1 tablespoon water in a food processor until the mixture is finely chopped and comes together in a big ball. Roll some into a small ball; if it seems too dry and crumbly, add 1 more tablespoon water.
  2. Scoop the mixture into slightly mounded tablespoons, then roll them into smooth balls. (Dampen your hands with a little water to help you roll.)
  3. If using the bananas, pulse them in a food processor until finely ground. Pour them into a small bowl. Roll each truffle in the banana dust until coated. If using the cocoa, pour it into a small bowl, then roll each truffle in it until coated.
  4. Store the balls at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
