|My girls (ages 3 and 9) did the mixing and|
rolling for this yummy snack.
This is one of the reasons I love this fast and nutritious snack recipe. It requires only a few ingredients, very little time, and no cooking. Its a perfect recipe for kids to help with (and eventually prepare on their own). It can be eaten right away, or made in the morning and served later in the day or even the next day. We make these with peanut butter, but Im sure if peanuts are an allergy concern, other nut butters should work just fine (though I haven't tested them). This recipe is adapted from a recipe found in the book, . "Super Baby Food" by Ruth Yaron. Its not an allergy-friendly book, but has some great ideas for making your own babyfood.
Peanut Butter Balls
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/4 cup honey
1 cup gluten-free oats
3 TBSP ground flaxseed meal
2 TBSP sorghum flour (or other gluten-free flour)
Mix all your ingredients together. Pinch small handfuls, squeeze to press together and roll into small balls. (The kids and I usually end up with all different sizes of balls, but I prefer them a little smaller than golfball size, just to give you a frame of reference.)
