[list_item]Slightly melting the peanut butter makes mixing MUCH easier, so start by warming the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds in a medium bowl.[/list_item]

A healthy version of a combination peanut butter ball/fudgy no-bake! That’s inspired, and they look delicious!
Thanks Greg! That they are.
I was a little concerned at first that the flax seed might be too overpowering, but my fear was completely unfounded. Mixes wonderfully!
Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for the recipe.

They look like meatballs. Now I want protein balls AND meatballs. Whoops.
Ha! ha! Yes, they sort of do. 🙂 Then again that first picture looks like something I’d never want to eat. Thanks for stopping by!
Would it be counterproductive to add rum to these? J/K They do look good. I might have to try these this weekend.
Rum? Hmmmm….perhaps…perhaps not. 🙂 It’s worth trying once.
They’re tasty little buggers! I’m going to make another batch tomorrow morning with dark chocolate bits in them. Epic YUM!
