No Bake Peanut Butter Nuggets

I am on a little kitchen kick. I’m back to recipe makeovers, focusing on making healthier versions of our favorite recipes. We enjoy meals and snacks with quality ingredients. I care more about that these days than calories. Real, whole foods are key for us to feel our best and power our adventures.

Luckily for me there is a plethora of other bloggers who love and value the same. Sunday I spent some time scrolling through Pinterest…per usual! I came across this recipe for 3 ingredient peanut butter balls. I immediately went to our kitchen and began prepping. But in true form, my brain swirled on how to amp these up a bit. The 3 ingredient version was plenty and a great staple. Tonight I used that recipe as a base. I added vanilla, shredded coconut, and chocolate for a more decadent version! Simply mix the nugget base ingredients together, roll into small bite size chunks. Add toppings and chill in fridge! Good anytime, but ideal as a post workout protein pack!
