These peanut butter balls are a favorite in our house. Sometimes they are the only thing I can get my two year old to eat and since they are relatively healthy I don't mind if he eats them. Plus they are super easy to make.
1 cup peanut butter (we buy fresh ground from our local grocer - its in the health food section)
1/2 cup raw honey
1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted (choose unrefined coconut oil, you want the flavor!)
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp. Chia seeds
1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. powdered milk
2/3 cup shredded coconut (Optional - To roll balls in)
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter and honey. Add coconut oil, mix well. Add 1/3 cup shredded coconut and chia seeds, mix well. Add powdered milk and stir until fully incorporated. The balls should have a soft texture and should not stick to your hands when touched. Add more powdered milk if balls are too sticky.
Place 2/3 cup shredded coconut into food processor (or blender, magic bullet, etc) and process until fine texture.
Roll peanut butter mixture into 1-2 inch balls. Roll in shredded coconut. Serve.
Store in an airtight container.
