No-Bake Peanut Butter Treats
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 10 min.
Excellent recipe! Left out the graham cracker crumbs.
This recipe was simple. I did not have all of the ingredients, so I substituted the dry milk powder with dry coffee creamer. I also added some chocolate cocoa powder. Since I did not have crunchy peanut butter, I crushed some unsalted peanuts and added them into the peanut butter. Easy to roll, not too sticky. The batch made about 22 balls. Cant wait to eat them!
Was skeptical how these would taste/turn out - with the powdered milk.. They are yummy!!!!! I wanted something to take with us on a 12 hr drive that would be easy and filling. I tripled the recipe - which only made 28 using my smallest cookie scoop. I substituted blue agave for the honey and only used 1/2 c agave vs 1 c of honey. They turned out perfect----not too dry, not too gooey. I read where someone used chocolate protein powder --- will try that once I use the rest of my powdered milk. Will definitely make more!
I had trouble with the dough being too dry to stick together. It may be because I use local honey which is a thicker consistency than what you buy in the store. Anyway, I tried adding a splash of milk and then it became too gooey. Had to add more oats and milk powder to firm it up. I will probably not attempt these again.
You will want to DOUBLE this recipe!! It is so great. I did change it a little-- used chocolate protein powder instead of powdered milk. Adding the addition of "chocolate-i-ness" made it taste like a true peanut butter cup! Instead of rolling into balls, the double recipe fits nicely into a 9x9 square pan. Great straight out of fridge or out of a lunch box. Yummy!
just made them; used granola instead of cracker crumbs (did not have)--- the dough was have eaten before I could roll them!!! very very good!
Made the recipe exactly as directed and my family loved them on our Canadian Thanksgiving table:)
I've made these before and rolled them in cocoa to dust them.
we had something similar in my school, but they used corn flakes instead of oats or Rice Crispies. delish as I remember it.
You can use almond extract instead of the vanilla and add some chopped almonds instead of the graham cracker crumbs. YUMMY!
