Peanut Butter Power Balls

Peanut Butter Power Balls

These little beauties are deliciously addictive, and perfect for a busy afternoon with no time for baking.

Just add oats, peanut butter, and dried fruit to your food processor for an instant, energy-packed treat.

These always disappear quicky, so you just may want to stuff a few into your own lunchbox or gym bag before they completely vanish.

PEANUT BUTTER POWER BALLS
Makes: 18 to 20 balls

1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup dried fruit (apricots, dates, cherries, etc.)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons raw pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt (optional)

Instructions

Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor (I use a Cuisinart). Process briefly, or pulse just a few times, until mixture begins to stick together, and is somewhat (but not entirely) blended.

Scoop small portions of the mixture out with a spoon. Roll into one-inch balls and enjoy! Delicious chilled, too.
