I made these with my two boys. We used chunky peanut butter and mini chocolate chips. My kids and I had a blast making these and they INHALED them. Great quick snack with pantry ingredients. Read More

These were okay. I am not really sure why they are called power balls though? Maybe because of the peanut butter? I really despise powdered milk in raw recipes as it dominates the flavor. So I used cake flour in its place. It made them taste like peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie dough. I used natural pb and mini chocolate chips. I changed the servings to 6 with the calculate button and got 7 pb balls. It did satisfy my sweet craving anyhow. Read More

Ok heres the deal....I didn't make this but my mom has been making this for years and years. But with one addition....she added a little bit of rice krispies! And I am not sure what milk powder is...she used malt powder. For every play date quick snack late night sleep over.....whatever the occasion she would whip these up and they are so good. This recipe brings me back 15 years to my childhood. Thanks for sharing I think I am going to make these! Read More

My husbands grew up on peanut butter balls and I've been hunting for a recipe we could both enjoy. These ratios are perfect. The other recipes I've tried were too sweet or had artificial ingredients. Good peanut butter flavor without being over-poweringly sweet. I skipped the chocolate chips but used natural peanut butter and honey from Trader Joe's. You can really taste the difference with quality ingredients. Read More

This is a tasty recipe. I like that it uses powdered milk for the crunch instead of graham crackers. This is not intended to replace peanut butter balls candy (in which graham crackers are entirely welcome) so if you're looking for that flavor this might not be the recipe for you. As a reasonably high-protein tasty sweet snack these hit the spot. FYI use milk chocolate chips semi-sweet tastes a bit out of place with the honey IMO! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Read More

Simple recipe. I used all natural peanut butter and fat free skim milk powdered and these are still sweet and wonderfully tasty. The texture is perfect and my fiance LOVED them. COuldn't tell the difference between these and the fatty ones. I consider that a huge success! Read More

so simple fast and delicious! this is the peanut butter ball recipe my mom used to make as well (though we never thought to put chocolate chips in the mix - DUH!) i love the consistency. perhaps i made the balls more like 2 tablespoon scoops but the recipe only yielded 11 power balls for me. i used poplar honey instead of clover and i think they would've tasted better with regular ol' clover honey. brings back childhood memories!
