School is back in session and that means I need all the after school snack ideas. Between early lunches and more activities, the kids are STARVING when they get home.
These no bake peanut butter balls are an easy option to have on hand for whenever you need a little pick me up.
Ingredients for Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Balls
The ingredient list is short and sweet for this one. And I’m betting you already have most of what you need.
How to Make No Bake Peanut Butter Balls
These are super simple to make and will only take a few minutes of prep and some fridge time.
Throw all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well with a spatula. Once mixed, it’s time to shape them into balls.
Using a tablespoon, scoop a bit of the mixture into your hand. Roll into balls and place in a container with a lid.
Continue until you’ve rolled all of the peanut butter mixture. You’ll have about 30 tablespoon sized peanut butter balls.
Stack them all in your container and seal with a lid. Refrigerate until you’re ready to eat them. They don’t have to be refrigerated the whole time but they keep their shape better this way and I prefer them chilled too.
Tips for Making
The mixture is pretty sticky which can lead to quite messy hands when rolling. I like to spray my hands with nonstick spray before rolling the peanut butter balls.
This keeps the mixture from becoming a sticky, gloopy mess and makes the process way easier.
I used one of my tablespoon measuring spoons to portion these out but you can also get a mini cookie scoop that is the same size.
