I fondly retrieve making vacation treats amongst my mom. An addictive as well as fantastically slowly favorite , normally made for Christmas , were classic peanut butter balls. No doubtfulness many of us retrieve those chocolate-coated treats amongst rice crispy cereal included for added squelch as well as texture. I never could resist peanut butter , as well as it often features inwards my no-bake treats as well as unloose energy bites.
The exclusively problem amongst the classic ones I enjoyed equally a youngster is that they are much besides sugary for my tastes now. In improver to icing saccharide , mom used not-so-natural peanut butter — you lot know the sort that isn't merely solid seat down peanuts but instead a sugary spread. I loved them anyway , but over the years I've searched for healthier alternatives to satisfy my sweetness tooth.
I've stayed truthful to the simplicity of the master copy recipe but left out butter , as well as used natural peanut butter as well as sweetener. I fifty-fifty bought a box of "healthy" sprouted rice crisp cereal , although I don't intend that's actually necessary — I shouldn't convey felt guilt if I had used Rice Krispies , to tell the truth. But I dare country that this not-so-guilty version is fifty-fifty tastier as well as exactly equally addictive equally the master copy , as well as it also happens to live on vegan friendly. Happily , if the urge to over-indulge is resisted , they are expert for you lot too.
Note: Coconut flour is to a greater extent than absorbent than grain flours as well as inwards this recipe it's exclusively required if the peanut butter used is somewhat runny. When stirred inwards , the mixture volition thicken , as well as hence permit it sit down afterwards adding a fleck earlier adding more. The mixture earlier shaping should live on moist , but neither besides dry out nor sticky.
