This sweet and filling Peanut Butter Ball Recipe is a healthy snack with just 4 ingredients and they are easy enough even the youngest of children can make them.
As a child, was summer not the best time of the year? That last day of school when you walked out of the building knowing you wouldn’t be back until September – sheer joy.
I have been home with my children, at least part-time, since the time they were born. Being a stay at home mom is no joke. This is some hard work – 24/7 – and your bosses can be real jerks. 😉
I have been back to work for several years now during school hours, but this year I made a change. I started working from home.
I was able to do more online weight management coaching, start this blog, take some classes, and work on developing a business of my own.
But now it is summer. And my kids are home. Everyday.
And I’m so excited. I love having them around. They make me laugh (at times frustrated), but they provide entertainment all day long. They are the most awesome little people I know.
While I have to rearrange my schedule and cut back on work-related items, I get to play with food with my kids daily, trying new recipes and doing fun food activities. They are willing participants and perfect test subjects.
One of our favorites? Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls!
You can grab the recipe for the peanut butter balls show above HERE.
Because my kids like spending time in the kitchen, during the summer months, you will find a fun twist on my Recipe Redux’s as I include my kiddos in the kitchen.
Here is the June Recipe Redux theme:
For ReDux’s birthday month, let’s celebrate each other! Pick a fellow ReDuxer, go to their blog and either make one of their recipes or create one of your own inspired by theirs. In your post, give your readers a little intro to this blogger, what you like about this blogger/their blog and either link to their recipe you made or share your brand new “inspired” creation.
This was so much fun! I chose Rachel with Delicious Balance.
Rachel drew me in with her beautiful photos. Her style of writing is easy going and chill- just the kind of writing I can relate to and am interested in reading. I encourage you to check out her blog.
Rachel has a delicious chocolate covered peanut butter ball recipe that is similar to one we frequently make at my house.
I thought this was the perfect recipe to start summer off with. It is simple enough for a child of any age to make. With just 4 ingredients, you can’t go wrong.
To make this recipe as simple as possible, I stirred the chocolate chips in rather than melting them. If you would like to make this recipe you can find it by clicking here.
Another fun twist would be to add the chocolate chips into the blender. If you have a high-speed blender the chips would melt making them chocolate peanut butter balls.
My son, Alex, has this gadget called a Cube which we used to put together our first ever video to share with you. I hope you enjoy and don’t mind my beginner editing and video skills! We have a lot to learn. 🙂
This Month I Challenge You:
Make this simple Peanut Butter Ball recipe with your child, or better yet, let your child make it on their own.
Don’t have a kid? Borrow a niece or nephew. It takes a community to raise children so go share this memory with a child you know.
Stay in Touch & Get Cooking!
