"I am a vegetarian and love to eat these before I go to the gym. I like to add extra whole peanuts sometimes. Substitute 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips for the raisins if desired. If you want to eat them on the go, wrap them in wax paper and tie with a bread tie. Enjoy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
natural peanut butter
I like that this has such simple ingredients and not a lot of sugar. It held together well and tasted good. Raisins added a nice chewy texture/taste. Good balance of oats to peanut butter. My boys are teens and only attracted to things with chocolate chips in them, but they still liked these.
Uh, may as well just get a spoon and eat the peanut butter from the jar. I kept adding raisins, honey, and oats until I could taste them. Won't make this again, but I'm not throwing them out either.
Simple no bake recipe! This would be easy to change by adding chia seeds, carob powder or any other "energy" ingredients!
There are a million variations on this recipe, but this is the one to start from. It would be difficult to screw up this recipe. Add whatever you have in the cupboard (sunflower seeds, flax seeds,dried fruits, etc.) and adjust the rest of the ingredients so it's still moist enough to make a ball. I don't worry to much about spoiling, since they rarely last more than a day or two.
My son has a severe peanut allergy, so I substituted Wowbutter (a soy based peanut butter substitued) and it was still very good! So it can even be tweaked a little for people with allergies!
great for my 5 1/2 year old who doesn't like to sit still for breakfast. She's a 'grazer' and this gives her a good sustained level of energy throughout the day
Love this. Both my kiddos sometimes won't eat. These are the perfect substitute anytime.
Just made this with my 7 yr old grandson and he loved it! Super easy and he enjoyed getting his hands in it. Tastes great following the basic recipe but will try nuts, seeds and maybe choc chips in the future. Thanks for the recipe!
