Easy No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls

By , May 11, 2010

How was your weekend? Happy Mother’s Day! I had a lovely weekend; I worked part of the day on Saturday and it was thankfully a nice, easy day. When I got home, I was craving chips and salsa for some reason, so F. and I walked down to our favorite Mexican takeout place a few blocks away and brought back chips, guacamole, and salsa, and had a little “food fiesta” on the living room floor in front of the TV. It was really fun. Simple things like that are just the best! On Mother’s Day I had a lovely outing with my mom & dad to a nature preserve with a big lake. It was a gorgeous day, and it felt wonderful to spend some quality time with family and nature.

Also, I’m walking normally now! No more walking cast. And most importantly, I’m riding my bike again, which means FREEDOM! The bus was great there for a while, but nothing can compare to just getting on your bike and going wherever you want, whenever you want! I have a new appreciation for that. I can actually go to the store whenever I want to! By myself! Without looking at a bus schedule! And going to work is an easy 15-minute bike commute compared to the bus, which could take as long as an hour. Anyway, my foot is healing quite well. It’s definitely not 100% yet, but it’s trying. I’m just so thankful to be in normal shoes again. 🙂

Anyway, on to the recipe! It’s super easy! I love these peanut butter balls because they’re so delicious and whip up quickly. I like to take them in my lunches as a treat, and they’re also good for warm-weather “cooking” since they don’t use the oven.

Lindsey’s Easy No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup chocolate chips

3 Tbsp honey (raw is nice since these don’t get heated)

3 Tbsp coconut flour

If you store your peanut butter in the fridge, let it soften a bit before making these; it’ll be easier to work with.

Mix everything together in a bowl, and roll the mixture into balls. (If the mixture is too sticky, add more coconut flour; if it’s too dry, add more peanut butter.) Store in the refrigerator.
