Video & Post: Fit Kids Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

My kids and I love making this recipe. Now that they are 6 and 11, they can do it themselves 🙂 This is a fun and delicious recipe I used to make with my mom. I modified it to be healthier and have a wider variety of crunchy options! In Hawaii, we would add macadamia nuts (high in fat - beware but so good), coconut and dried fruit too! Enjoy! Psst: Fit Kids Recipe video to come 🙂

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, using the 1 1/2 cup powdered milk (save the 1/4 cup for rolling the balls in.) Roll dough into balls and then roll in powdered milk. Place on wax paper covered cookie sheet or plate. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Yum!
