I have had an incurable sweet tooth lately. (No, I'm not pregnant, so don't even ask.) I just love me some sweets. And, since I picked up my wedding dress this weekend (!) I need to crack down on not eating so much crap. So while perusing Pinterest, I stumbled upon this recipe for Peanut Butter Balls. Sometimes a girl just needs some peanut butter and chocolate.
1 Cup Kellogs Cracklin' Oats Bran Cereal
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
Chocolate Chips to Drizzle
-Crumble cereal in food processor and mix with peanut butter. Roll in to ball and place on lined cookie sheet and place in freezer for a bit. Melt your chocolate chips in a ziploc bag, snip off a corner and drizzle over the balls (hah!).
I doubled the recipe and used my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop and got 22 balls(:p).
Pretty Simple Huh?
I did make one substitution to save some calories. I used PB2 instead of normal peanut butter.
|Powdered Peanut Butter. Just add water. Pretty genius and healthy.|
|Looks gross. Tastes awesome.|
|Are you hungry yet?|
Ok, ball jokes aside, these things are awesome and easy to make. I'm storing mine in the freezer because let's be real, who doesn't love frozen peanut butter and chocolate. I think next time I might add some oats just to stretch it a little farther and make more. The best part about these though, three of these bad boys are just under 100 calories and there is tons of fiber so you're not still hungry afterwards. The perfect little dessert.
Do you guys have any simple, sin-free, go-to dessert recipes? This one will definitely be added into my favorites. If you try it out, let me know what you think!
