Peanut Butter Crunch Balls

08 May

peanut butter balls

These are so good and I think that you can actually say that theya are good for you. These are a great snack as you hurry out the door or if you are walking past the fridge at 2am to take the dogs out.  I like to keep mine in the freezer so they are a little firmer.  I use whatever cereal I have in the pantry and they are a good use of all those cereal boxes with just a little left in the bottom of the box.


  • 2 cups honey
  • 6 cups peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 3 cups rice krispies
  • 1½ cups grape nuts
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups coconut
  • 3 cups crushed cereal (I use whatever I have on hand)
  • 1½ cups mini chocolate chips
  • 5-8 tablespoons powdered milk
  • 4 cups crushed mini-wheat cereal
  • I have also added chopped dates and craisins.


  1. Mix all but last two ingredients and mix until well combined. Add powdered milk, like flour, to make a soft, cookie-like dough.
  2. Form into 1” ball and roll in crushed mini-wheats. A scoop works very well for this. Refrigerate or freeze
