Reeces Peanut Butter Balls
Updated: Jun 3, 2019
There is nothing worse than being hungry and staring into the fridge wondering what to eat. Usually snack time for me is the hardest with not wanting to consume a full meal but wanting to eat something quickly that's packed with a balance of the macronutrients that leaves me satiated.
My dad is a huge fan of Reece Peanut Butter Cups and Pieces. I have so many great childhood memories of sharing this snack with him. Both of us are health conscious, wanting to pack in all the best nutrients as possible so I came up with this easy to make snack for him.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Set Time: 30 minutes
1 C Quick Oats
3 TBSP Hemp Hearts
3 TBSP Chia Seeds
1/2 C Peanut Butter
1-2 TBSP Cocoa Powder
1/3 C Reece Peanut Butter Minis
1/4 to 1/2 C water
Combine all ingredients, except the water in a medium sized bowl. Mix with a spoon. If too dry add ~1/8 cup of water, continue to slowly add water to reach desired consistency.* For best results allow to rest for 20-30 minutes. Roll into a ball. You can also squish these into a mini muffin tin.
Store for 3 days on the counter or in the freezer for up to 3 weeks. Trust me they will not last 3 weeks in the freezer.
I usually consume 2 of these immediately after a hard workout. I will eat one of these to tied me over when I need a calorie hit.
Makes: Ideally 12 (Every time I make this recipe I end up with 11).

*Think wet sand - when you squish it into a ball it holds form but otherwise it falls apart.
