I don’t know about you, but one thing I distinctly remember from being in school is always being starving by the time I got home. I always needed a snack.
And it was at these times that I could easily go for the prepackaged not-so-good for you stuff simply because it was convenient.
But I found a better option. It’s sweet. It’s full of protein.
And as a mom now, it doesn’t take long to make so it’s not a chore to make for my children (this is a really important thing because who wants to serve health food if it takes all day to make it).
Healthy Peanut Butter Balls
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey (I thought these were a little sweet, so next time I would decrease to 1/3 cup)
3/4 cup dry milk
3/4 cup instant oats
Mix all the ingredients together. Form into balls (I used a tablespoon measure and got about 19 balls). Refrigerate until firm.
Sebastian really liked them. And I thought they were yummy, too. And I felt like it satisfied my hunger really well. I only needed one, and I was satiated. That like never happens. So I call this one a winner.
What do you serve as an afternoon snack?
