I was looking for a good-for-you snack. I remembered something my second grade teacher told us (way back when)... if you only had two foods -- peanut butter and milk -- you could survive. This snack contains both. A serving size of 5 peanut butter balls is: 3 WW points and 145 calories. It contains 5 grams of fat (mostly the heart-healthy monounsaturated kind), 6.5 grams of protein, 1.3 grams of fiber, and 17 grams of carbohydrates. You could add fiber by adding unflavored Benefiber in place of some of the powdered milk, or by adding oatmeal, wheat germ or flax meal. You could also boost the protein by adding protein powder. Just keep the liquid / peanut butter / powder ratio the same.
- Stir ingredients together in a bowl until well-incorporated.
- Be sure you have clean hands!
- Scoop a teaspoon-sized lump and roll into a small ball.
- Chill if desired.
- Serving size, 5 balls.
