Who has SWB's peanut butter balls recipe?

I know I have made that recipe and the boy liked them.  Went to go look up the recipe for the first time in a few years.  Found I had a number of them, none of them were labled the one he liked.  I know it was a super simple recipe and did NOT have all sorts of extra stuff like coconut.

I'm looking around my computer because it sounds familiar. I did find The Welltrained Kitchen (recipes from this forum from years ago?) and searched there. The only PB balls are AbbeyJ's, not SWB's. I'll keep looking. Here's the basics for Abbeyej's: 


Mix together equal parts of peanut butter, honey, dried milk powder and wheat germ. Roll into balls and chill. Keep in the fridge.


And here's the site which looks like it is worth exploring:

When I said this recipe sounds familiar, I think I was remembering this, saved away on my computer and I still have never made them! But they still sound good:


Protein Balls

LuAnn writes: "This recipe comes from my mother who oftentimes went on “health kicks†when I was a kid. This recipe is so delicious, you would never know it’s healthy. And even better, it’s easy for kids to make with minimal supervision from Mom or Dad. My children are ages 7, 5, 3, and 1. I’ve been making this recipe since my oldest was 3. I will double or triple the recipe and keep some in the freezer. We pop a couple throughout the day when I can tell concentration and motivation are low in my kids or me! A great pick-me-up." Peace Hill Press adds: You can substitute 1 c. dry milk for the protein powder to save money. The protein balls just aren’t AS protein-packed.

Submitted by LuAnn Simmons

Prep Time: 30 minutes (15 minutes to mix, 15 minutes to roll into balls)


Basic Ingredients:

1 c. peanut butter

1 c. honey

1 c. protein powder (any kind—but cocoa protein powder makes the balls especially yummy. Available at health food stores like Shaklee or GNC.)  OR USE DRY MILK.

Add-In Ingredients (4 cups total, create your own combination!):

Sunflower seeds


Chocolate chips




Dried cranberries

Oat bran

Wheat germ

Flax seed (ground or whole)


      Mix together the basic ingredients in a large bowl: peanut butter, honey, and protein powder.

      Add 4 cups total of the add-in ingredients. (Peanuts, oatmeal, and chocolate chips are a delicious classic.)

      The more dry ingredients you add, the stiffer the mixture gets. You want the protein balls to stick together when you roll them, but you don’t want them to be so sticky that they won’t hold shape. Add more oatmeal, wheat germ, or oat bran if your mixture is too goopy. Add more honey if your mixture is too dry.

      Roll the mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter. This is the tedious part—so get the kids involved!

Refrigerate the balls (or freeze any extra). You can stack them in Tupperware and separate the layers with waxed paper.
