Peanut Butter Balls

While growing up my mom would often make these and they would make a great protein snack that would always hit the spot after school. Plus being a healthy snack made Momma happy. One day mom passed down many recipes to me in February 2012. I decided I had to try them for my own family now. They are very simple and easy to make. Here is all that you will need:

1 Cup Honey
1 1/2 Cups Peanut Butter (Chunky or Creamy)
9 oz (3 cups) Nonfat Milk Powder
2 Teaspoon Vanilla

Oil your bowl first then add the honey, peanut butter, and vanilla
Then add the powered milk on top

 Using a dough hook mix until well mixed
The dough will look dry and grainy once you finish mixing with the dough mixer
  Continue to kneed together with your hands like you would when making dough.
 If your worried about it being to dry you can add a small squeeze of honey and a tad more peanut butter.

Scoop a tablespoon size amount into hand and kneed slightly like you would dough
 and then roll into a small to medium size ball and place on parchment lined container.
Cover and store in refrigerator.

For added fun and flavor try rolling them in coconut, Toasted Sesame Seeds, or even Wheat Germ.

(Mom Tasted and Approved)
 Family approved too!! 
(Well except for Emma: who say WOW peanut butter smell, you know I don't do peanut butter!)
