Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

My mom is somewhat of a health nut and used to make these growing up as an after school snack. They are a healthy snack and are like little protein balls. At least that’s what I kept telling myself as I threw them down my throat.

  1. I’m a personal trainer and meet people every day who want to lose fat. I am amazed that in the 21st century age of information, at how much MIS-information is out there. Peanut butter is 50% fat if you read the nutrition label. Any food that attributes half or more of its calories to fat, should not be eaten if you hope to lose fat or not put on any. If the peanut butter nutrition labels says: Calories: 140 per tbspn, then you look at the fat calories and it says Fat: 70 or more- dont eat it. Same goes for ANY food. Check the nutritional lable.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Peanut butter does have protein while it’s not low in calories I agree. These do not promise to make you skinny in anyway just to clarify…:)

      • as long as you get all natural peanut butter, then it’s all natural fat. anddd healthy fats are paramount in getting healthy and losing weight (peanut butter, avocados, etc.) THAT is a known fact and if you are a personal trainer you should ensure you know the proper nutrition information because peanut butter is not necessary to rid your entire diet of.

  2. I am planning on making these and was just curious as to what you’d suggest is the best way to store em’ after they’ve set? Leaving them on a cookie sheet takes up to much space lol thanks in advance ;-)

  3. I really want to try these but I wondered if you have a substitute for powdered milk. Also, to Kathryn, not everything needs to be low fat. Nuts are nutritious, filling and like you pointed out, a healthy protein.

  4. Made these today and they were delicious. Had a little flaked coconut left from a previous recipe the other day, so through that in too. Would maybe try a small bit of mini chocolate chips sometimes too. Thank you.
