No-Bake Peanut Butter Quinoa Balls

After the holidays it’s nice to have some healthier snack options available! These no bake peanut butter and quinoa balls are really yummy and you will only need 5 ingredients you might already have in your pantry. I used quinoa puffs instead of rice crispies since I already had that on hand.
