Peanut Butter Balls

When my kids get home from school and they have that exhausted look in their eyes, it's important to get peanut butter in their mouths as quickly as possible.

Enter peanut butter balls.

When blood sugar is low, the world is a dark and hostile place. But with a couple of peanut butter balls in the stomach, suddenly the sun bursts forth from behind the clouds, and amazingly, there's enough energy for running outside to play.

Peanut Butter Balls

1 cup powdered milk
1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup honey

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or mixer. Roll them into balls and place them on a foil or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Place the balls in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for those moments when your kids need some quick protein and calories.
