My son & I LOVE protein balls! I make a batch and store them in the fridge and a week later they're already all gone.  This is the perfect healthy snack & my son thinks they're even tasty enough to be called a treat. It's a win win for everyone!
 The hero of this recipe is the new Peter Pan Simply Ground Original and Honey Roast peanut butter. It's creamy with perfect amount of crunch. Peter Pan®Simply Ground Peanut Butter has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. And unlike some peanut butters, there's no need to stir after opening.  It adds the perfect texture to these snack balls without feeling like you ate a whole peanut!

1/2 cup Peter Pan Simply Ground Original Peanut Butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 tsp. vanilla
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
2 Tablespoons ground flax (optional)
1 1/2 cups oats
In mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter and honey. Add in pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, protein powder, flax and stir until combined.  Slowly stir in oats until incorporated. Using a cookie scoop, scoop mixture onto cookie sheet and allow to cool & solidify in fridge. Store in fridge in tubberware.

To package these festive flavored treats, place a napkin in a fruit basket (available at any craft store), add in peanut butter protein balls, then place basket in large plastic treat bag.  

Tie the bag & initial monogram with twine.  Perfect to gift this delicious goodness! I love how flavorful, a little crunchy & healthy these are. They're a great snack no matter what age.
