½ cupof creamy peanut butter (not the kind where the oil separates)
¼ cupof raisins
In a large bowl, add oats, peanut butter, and raisins. Using your hands, mix together thoroughly.
Still using your hands, roll into small balls about the size of a tablespoon.
Place onto a baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.
Eat immediately or store in an airtight container or silicone reusable bag in your refrigerator.
Try these mix-ins:
Mini vegan chocolate chips: Instead of or alongside the raisins. We use dairy-free semi-sweet/ dark chocolate chips. However, use keto-approved (sugar-free) vegan chocolate if preferred for delicious plant-based oatmeal chocolate peanut butter balls.
Cacao nibs: For crunch and antioxidants.
Chia seeds/Flax seeds: Will thicken the mixture and provide extra fiber, protein, and omega fatty acids.
Other seeds: Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and hemp seeds would also work in these granola peanut butter balls to add extra crunch, protein, healthy fats, and several nutrients.
Protein powder: Use plain or flavored protein (like coffee, plant-based chocolate, vanilla, etc.). Different protein powders will be more/less absorbent, so you may need additional liquid. We recommend replacing some oats with protein powder.
Cocoa powder: Similar to the protein powder, you may need to add some liquid.
Other fried fruit: Instead of raisins, you could add finely chopped dates, apricots, blueberries, or cranberries. You could also mix in options like dried apple.
Shredded coconut: Use unsweetened coconut to add some extra chew and flavor.
