Peanut Butter Snack Balls {contributor Havalah}

Peanut Butter Snack Balls, delicious and healthy, perfect for a quick energy boost!
I’ve seen energy balls around the internet and finally decided to make some for a snack for me and the littles.
However, I kind of made up my own based on what ingredients I had around the house and they turned out amazing. My boys couldn’t get enough of them and I really loved them (I’m not the biggest peanut butter fan). I used less honey then most recipes called for, and they were still sweet enough to enjoy.

    mm I haven’t made any of the energy balls I’ve seen yet either, but these look fantastic with ingredients that I actually know and usually have!
