I Do Love Peanut Butter……

August 16, 2013

This is for you, Darlene. 🙂

Since I have been blogging, I have been introduced to many other bloggers, some in person, and some simply through Pinterest and other bloggers online. I have one blog that I read regularly and she always has the BEST…..SIMPLE recipes!!!

I saw this recipe on her blog yesterday, and literally RAN into the kitchen to make it! I was craving something sweet and knew this would hit the spot!

WARNING!!!! You may want to have a house full of people to avoid eating all of these by yourself!!

Click HERE for the recipe.

Her recipe calls for 1/4 C of Peanut Butter and 1/4 C of Almond Butter, but I used 1/2 C of Better n’ Peanut Butter.

Dump all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix!

(Oatmeal, Nut Butter, Chia Seeds, Ground Flax Seeds, Cinnamon, Honey)

Roll into balls and refrigerate overnight. I made a little bit smaller balls and stretched the recipe into 20 balls. (I ate two before remembering to take this picture!!)

1 Ball = 1 PPV

Breakfast

Snack

Lunch

Snack (No. Not all of them. Yes. five of them.)

I have a few items that I ate that I didn’t get a picture of. I feel like taking my break for a few days got me away from a few of my really good habits…..like taking a picture of almost EVERYTHING I eat!! It really does help to keep me accountable. Back at it this week, and STRONG!!
