I’m a snacker! I really enjoy eating snacks (all day if I could). Since I do like to eat in small meals all day, I usually choose the wrong types of snacks – all that are not good for you. Since I work at home, the pantry and fridge are only a few steps away. I NEED nutritious snacks that I WANT to eat! I’ve been thinking what I want to accomplish for the New Year New You and I’ve decided beneficial and nutritious foods will be at the top of my list. I’ve seen some recipes around the internet and decided to come up with an energy ball that is yummy, has no refined sugar and includes one of my favorite ingredients – peanut butter! But it’s peanut butter with a twist. It is actually Peanut Powder. These energy balls are made with peanut powder and quite delicious. They are easy to make, have high fiber ingredients and are NOT calorie laden!
This recipe has no – can you believe it – NO flour OR sugar/artificial sweeteners!! I know it’s hard to believe. The Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls are flavorful, perfectly moist and sweetened with natural agave (or honey if you prefer)

It takes only a few minutes, start to finish to make these yummy energy balls. Double the batch and you have a nutritious snack on-the-go to last a week!
So, I used a new ingredient that I’ve never tried before. It’s Peanut Powder (like dehydrated peanut butter). It is pure roasted peanuts that have been ground with no added sugar or salt. With 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter, Jif™ Peanut Powder is great for smoothies, baking, and more! Peanut powder mixed with water or almond milk is low in fat with protein. It tasted just like peanut butter when mixed in a recipe.
- 1 cup oatmeal ( I used regular oats not quick oats)
- 1 cup Jif™ Peanut Powder
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup Agave (start with 1/3 and add more if you need it sweeter)
- 1/2 cup dried apples (cut into little pieces with kitchen scissors)
- add enough water to make the dough into little balls. I use anywhere from 1/3 – 1/2 cup of water.
- dash of salt to taste (optional)
1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
2. Mix well and roll and compress into bite sized balls.
3. Place in a sealed container and refrigerate.
4. They’re ready to eat when you are!
Just eat 2 or 3 Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls to make it an energy ball kind of day. I hope you like them!! These are perfect for families on the go with lots of sports, dance and fun activities.
I purchased my Jif Peanut Powder at our neighborhood Walmart. You can find the Jif™ Peanut Powder in the same section/aisle as the regular peanut butter. I found it on the second shelf from the top. Boy do I like that store! It’s clean, organized and right down the street. What is your favorite peanut butter recipe? With a couple of changes you can exchange peanut powder for your peanut butter! #StartWithJifPowder
