I’ve seen recipes similar to this here and there over the years, but the ratios have never been quite right, so we set about experimenting until we hit the sweet spot: enough binder to keep it together, but not so much that you feel like you’re overdosing on peanut butter and honey.
We’re calling them Peanut Butter Pebbles, and I did very little work for this one.
- 2 cups cereal, separated: 1 cup to mix with the peanut butter and honey, another cup or so of cereal to roll the balls in. We used a popular puffed rice cereal; if you use corn flakes or something else, you may want to crush up this cup – but experiment to see what works for you.
- 2 tablespoons honey (molasses might also work if you’ve got a honey allergy)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter that works for you)
Stir peanut butter, honey, and 1 cup of cereal together in a bowl. Use a larger bowl than you need if you’ve got little ones stirring – this will help decrease spills.
Use a scooper or two spoons to make bite-sized balls and roll them in the cereal. I did this part because everything is still warm from stirring and little hands might not be gentle enough to keep from smashing the balls.
Line them up on a line cookie sheet or plate and chill until set. Enjoy!
