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.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Quinoa Balls
Yields 14 balls
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 tbsp honey
1 cup quinoa puffs
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup shredded coconut

I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year!!!
It’s time for another quick and easy, very yummy sweet treat! My daughter and I made these no bake Peanut butter and Oatmeal cookies. Drizzled with some maple butter and a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt, my daughter’s idea, not necessary but totally worth it!
