No-bake Peanut Butter Treats

PB treats

These are a kid-friendly snack, and an easy treat that kids can help make. A little sticky, but fun! Recipe adapted from The Double Energy Dietby Judi and Shari Zucker. Reprinted by permission of The Book Publishing Company. Photo by Hannah Kaminsky of Bittersweet Blog.

Makes 12 to 14 treats

  • 3/4 cup wheat germ (or use hemp seeds or quinoa flakes
    as gluten-free options)
  • 1/2 cup creamy unsalted dry roasted peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons liquid sweetener of your choice
  • 3/4 cup puffed wheat or puffed rice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water, if needed

Place the wheat germ, peanut butter, raisins, nutritional yeast, and sweetener in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Stir in the puffed wheat. If need be, add a small amount of water until the mixture adheres well. This will depend on the consistency of the peanut butter you use.

Wet your hands with cold water, pick up teaspoon-sized clumps of the mixture and roll between your palms to form small balls. Arrange on a parchment-lined plate. Serve at once or better yet, chill until needed.
