Oh these are so yummy! I used cranberries instead of raisins and rolled them in seseme seeds. I also used 1/2 crunchy 1/2 creamy peanut better in one batch. GREAT RECIPE! THANK YOU!
This recipe is great! It makes for such a nice, yummy, healthy treat or breakfast and is so easy, too! YUM! I made this into bars using 1 tbs of sugar-free syrup in place of the honey (as thats what I had on hand), cashew butter and a mix of granola, oats, coconut, raisins, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. To make assembly easier I warmed the syrup and cashew butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and then mixed in everything else.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this super easy and yummy treat with us, Erin. Ill make it again for sure.

Oh my these were very good for a healthy snack/treat. I doubled the recipe, added 1/3 cup of vanilla protein powder, used agave nectar instead of honey and dried cherries instead of raisins. I got about 30 good sized balls out of it and according to my recipe analyzer, they clock in at around 110 calories per ball. They turned out beautifully and will make a wonderful post workout snack. Thank you!
These were good. I kept to the ratio of ingredients as listed in the recipe, and the flavor of the sunflower seeds seemed to come through more than the peanut butter. Not a bad thing, but I wasn't expecting it.
I modified the recipe slightly. I used sunflower butter because I seem to have an allergy to peanuts. I left out the raisins and used agave nectar instead of honey and then rolled in the flax seeds. They were very good and gave a protien boost for breakfast. Yummy.
this is a fantastic recipe! my kids and i LOVE peanut butter and often eat a spoonful for a snack mid day but this is a super nice treat with all the extra's mixed in :) I made these with natural peanut butter but i didnt have flax seed, thanks Erin!
