Hello, all! How’s your day going? Just starting? I wish mine was…see, I’ve been up for awhile, but haven’t had a smidgen of time to make breakfast for myself. Smalls ate, don’t worry (oh yea of little faith!). So my empty stomach got me thinking. Sometimes mommy needs some help. A lot of help, or, more specifically, a lot of pre-made snacky goodness that I can use to fuel my day. Skip to the recipe for Peanut-Free PowerBalls.
Quick & Easy Breakfast: Peanut-Free PowerBalls!
And so, I whipped up a batch of what I like to call power balls. They’re packed with protein, whole grain, fruit, and aren’t too sweet. Smalls loves ’em, which is a bonus, too. Anything I can do to help give him some extra energy…like he needs it! Since he started walking, WOW!
That kid has BOUNDLESS energy. Seriously. Mamas, I know you know what I mean. So. These power balls turned out pretty stellar this time, so I thought I’d share my recipe. They’re super easy to make and so convenient. Plus you could pop them in the freezer for later.
Peanut-Free Power Balls
- 1/2 Cup Sunbutter
- 1/2 Cup Rice Syrup (or Honey)
- 1 Cup Kamut flakes
- 1 1/2 Cups Oatmeal
- 1/4 Cup Dried Figs, finely chopped
- Put the Sunbutter and Rice Syrup into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute, stir, and continue in 30-second increments until smooth and well combined. Place the remaining ingredients in a bowl and give everything a quick stir. Remove the Sunbutter/Rice Syrup mix from the microwave and stir (yes, again).
- Pour the Sunbutter/Rice Syrup mixture into the bowl with the dry mixture and stir until just combined.
- Using a teaspoon, or a cookie scoop, roll into balls.
- You can store in an air-tight container for up to four days on the counter, or up to 10 days in the fridge.
Do you enjoy peanut-free powerballs as a snack?
