Peanut Butter Power Breakfast Balls

Make these energy bites in a jiffy and keep yourself powered through the entire day. 


These little beauties are deliciously addictive and perfect for a busy morning or afternoon with no time for baking.

Just add oats, peanut butter, and dried fruit to your food processor for an instant, energy-packed treat.

These always disappear quicky, so you just may want to stuff a few into your own lunchbox or gym bag before they completely vanish.

Peanut Butter Power Breakfast Balls
Recipe Type: snack, breakfast
Serves: 18-20 balls
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup natural peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup dried fruit (apricots, dates, cherries, etc.)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons raw pecans
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt (optional)
  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor. Process briefly, or pulse just a few times, until mixture begins to stick together, and is somewhat (but not entirely) blended.
  2. Scoop small portions of the mixture out with a spoon. Roll into one-inch balls and enjoy! Delicious chilled, too.
