P.B Balls

Brief Description

These are super easy to make! Whether it's for a function or school lunches, everyone will enjoy these. No equipment needed. They are full of fiber, protein and healthy fats with the chia seeds and peanut butter, so a little goes a long way. A couple of these will keep you satisfied till your next meal or if you have the ground coffee, they provide a great pick me up!


I also the Avalanche Sugar Free drinking chocolate as an easy way to add the cocoa and the sweetener, instead of separately adding the sweetener like Natvia and cocoa powder. Also Avalanche do a sugar free peppermint variety too, so if you don't have or can't find the pure peppermint essence at a health food store, this can be a back up plan. 

Do use a salt free crunchy peanut butter- this works the best and adds a nice crunch! 

If you don't have Natvia, you can use rice syrup or honey (these are just higher sugar alternatives, you may just need slightly less than in recipe)
