Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Granola Balls

Hi everyone! Long time no blog. I honestly thought my food blogging days were behind me. It felt like my priorities or rather my hobbies shifted after becoming a family of 3. It certainly feels like I have less time for myself during the day.

But, but, but…. I have this really awesome recipe that I just had to share because I know you’ll love it too.

Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Granola Balls. Or granola balls as my toddler calls them.

I am no stranger to various energy balls (hello PB&J Energy Balls, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites, Raw Cinnamon Raisin Balls, Chocolate Brownie Power Nibbles, which are some of my previous favourites). But these are granola balls are even easier. Just 5 ingredients and a bowl. All healthy, delicious ingredients. You don’t need a food processor, although if you only have whole flax seeds, I have used my spice grinder to grind the flax.

And the biggest win is that my toddler loves them. Sometimes to a detriment to his meals because he loves them so much.

The recipe is also adaptable. Remove the raisins. Use sunflower seed butter to make it nut free. Swap in a liquid sweetener of your choice (I have heard a touch of chocolate in the sweetener makes these really yummy too). But most of all, don’t make the same mistake I made the first time and half the recipe. Make it all because it is so good. πŸ™‚

So here’s to sharing it with all my internet friends and beyond. Enjoy!

And maybe I’ll post another recipe before the next year! How are you all doing?

Adapted from Chef Savvy

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup quick cook oats
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
2 tbsp maple syrup

1. Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.

2. Roll into balls and store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

Makes 20 balls, depending on size.

  1. Toddlers are so curious about food! This sounds like a decent meal replacement – much better than what my 10 year old thinks she might have instead of a meal πŸ™‚ Nice to have you drop in occasionally!
