Peanut Butter Balls
I was asked to do a food demo for moms on how to get their little ones to eat healthy and show them how to make easy recipes that kids will love! I was excited to do this demo because, I mean, don’t we all stress on getting our kids to eat healthy?!
As a mom with two little girls, a 4 year old and 20 month old, I totally get the struggle!
We discussed many ways we can get our kids to eat healthy without the nagging and bribing. I provided tips on how to create a healhty eating enviroment and making meal time a pleasant experience, which is so important in order to build a healthy relationship with food. Some moms came up to me after and told me they found it super helpful. So I’m thinking I might write a blog post about it and share my tips with you as well. But for now… I want to share with you one of the recipes I made.
As I was planning the food demo, this kid-friendly recipe came to mind right away. My kids have been gobbling them up and I couldn’t be happier about it! I mean, Peanut Butter Balls are always a favorite so you can’t go wrong. I knew it would be a great recipe to share with moms.
It’s quick to make with minimal mess – pretty much what all moms want! Kids will love making these and shaping them into balls.
The classic peanut butter balls are loaded with confectioner sugar, which also helps keep the form of the balls. So I swapped that out with almond flour, which hold their shape just as well. This decreases the sugar and amps up the protein, healthy fats, and fiber. All the things we want our children to have!
It kinda helps that adults are in love with this satisfying recipe, too – so it’s a win/win all around! Get the recipe below and enjoy!
P.S. If you are a mom on a busy schedule looking for quick snack fixes, a college student with a hectic schedule, a teenager with a love for healthy food, or you just want new and refreshing ideas on how to eat healthy and make simple and easy recipes – all in an engaging and interactive way… then there is a food demo available for you!
I customize my food demos to your needs for an enjoyable and delicious experience. I provide handouts and printed recipes so you don’t have to worry about taking notes, and you leave with a wealth of new information and recipes to live your healthiest life!
