My kids are frequently hungry. Or, at least that’s what they tell me. Sometimes I think they’re just bored, so I give them an apple and suggest we read a book or go outside.
But some days, their appetites seem to have no end. And there are times–like when we’re going on a car trip or headed up to bed–when full tummies are helpful. That’s where this snack comes in handy.
I first made Peanut Butter Balls during the Pantry Challenge earlier this year. Desperate for something sweet but facing bare cabinets and a busted budget, I rolled peanut butter and powdered sugar together and fell desperately in love.

Since then, I’ve tweaked the recipe–upping the nutrition and downsizing the decadence. Feel free to add more or less honey, depending on your sweet tooth.
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
- 1/4 cup honey
- Combine all ingredients. (f the consistency isn't quite roll-able, add more peanut butter or more oats or dry milk powder to get the right texture.)
- Roll into tablespoon-size balls.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
