Peanut Butter Granola Balls

I love peanut butter and granola. In fact, whenever I make any sort of peanut butter/granola concoction I eat it all up in a day. It can be dangerous. Good thing these can be made as healthy or dirty as you want! Just omit or add anything you prefer to make it healthier. That's the beauty of this recipe. You can even do it gluten and dairy free (which I did). Also if you prefer more of one ingredient, feel free to add more and compensate by increasing the honey or PB or use less of another ingredient to keep the texture right. I've seen several recipes like this posted online, but decided to make up my own because they are all basically the same and there is no exact science to it. You could do the same, but here is my version to do with what you will. Trust me, these are a fast and tasty breakfast!

Peanut Butter Granola Balls

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup carob or chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or use all PB)
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1/4 cup rice krispies
  • 1/2 cup honey or agave
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut (optional)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed. Roll into 1 inch balls and chill in refrigerator for half an hour. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 week.

X, A!
