How to make these Healthy Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Balls?
These are probably one of the easiest snacks you can make when you’re in a pinch.
1. Process: the dates and peanut butter in a food processor until smooth. Check the consistency, and if it seems a bit too ‘loose’ then add in 1 tbsp of coconut flour (or your choice of flour). You should be able to press the paste between your fingers without it sticking too much.
2. Mix: together the paste we just made with the crispy rice cereal.
3. Roll them into balls, I was able to make 12 out of them using a standard size cookie scooper. Stick them into the freezer to let them chill to firm up.
3. You can basically stop here and just enjoy them as is, but I love to drizzle (or coat) some dark chocolate to make them extra delicious.
How to store these Healthy Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Balls:
I like to keep these in the freezer, it keeps them firm and the perfect consistency. At room temperature they tend to get a little soft so I do recommend keeping them in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
i know everyone always appreciates substitutions so I’ve tried these with different ingredients.
Peanut butter: you can use any nut or seed butter here, so if you have an allergy to nuts try sunflower seed butter! I will say, tahini is much more runnier so you may need to add a bit more flour.
Dates: I prefer to sweeten my treats with dates as much as possible, but I have successfully made this with brown rice syrup and maple syrup.
Crispy rice cereal: I used Nature Paths Organics but you can use any rice cereal that you have on hand!
