Peanut Butter Balls

DSCN2432

This quick and easy high-protein breakfast “meal” is perfect for when I don’t want to cook but I want the kids to have a semi-healthy breakfast.  We make these babies up in about 5 minutes and serve them with apple slices.  And don’t be fooled by their size, they’re super filling!

Peanut Butter Balls

8 T. Pure brown sugar    20 cents

1 c. peanut butter    92 cents

1/2 t pure vanilla    23 cents

1/4 c. almond meal (Trader Joe’s) 31 cents

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly in a large bowl, and shape into 6 (or 12 smaller) equally-sized balls.  The best part is that you get to eat them with your hands! 🙂
