Graham Cracker Peanut Butter Balls

You know how as a parent, there are weeks when it seems like you can only eat with one hand? Me too. This recipe is helpful because you can pop one into your mouth to satisfy hunger or a craving, easy peasy. Plus, you can make them in about 5-minutes without any special equipment, which makes them even better in my book!

I like to make these as a make-ahead snack option for myself and the kids, or for a healthy dessert option. My toddler often helps me stir the batter together and roll up the balls too.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes, these are best if they’ve chilled for at least 30 minutes (which helps the oats to soften), but you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Are these the same as Graham Balls?

They have a sort of similar flavor, but they have different ingredients. (Graham Balls usually are made with sweetened condensed milk.)

How can I make these nut-free?

You can swap sunflower seed butter in for the peanut butter if you’d like.
