Peanut Butter Quinoa Trail Mix Balls Recipe

When I take vacations with my family we love our junk food. Once I am on vacation so is all healthy eating. But then I get to a point were I am craving something healthy- so here is a good recipe to have so that you can take something more than just junk food with you. Of course, as you will see below, this recipe is best to store in a refrigerator- so make sure you are going where there will be one and then you won't be sorry. Our family thoroughly enjoyed this recipe.

1/2 cup Quinoa, cooked and cooled
1/3 cup Pumpkin Seeds (optional)
1/3 cup Craisins
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup Honeyville Powdered Peanut Butter + 2 Tbsp Water

Mix together peanut butter and water, then mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
Place mixture/bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Spoon about a tablespoon and form into a tight ball. 
Place back in the refrigerator and allow to “set” for one hour. Then Enjoy! Store in refrigerator.

Mix all ingredients together

Form into balls and place in fridge to set.

Then ENJOY!!!

Can these be made with regular peanut butter rather than powder? Thanks!

Hi Sharon! Yes, you can substitute regular peanut butter instead of the powdered peanut butter. Thanks for the question!
