This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2/3 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c crispy rice cereal
  • 1 c. quick oats
  • 1/4 c. raisins
  • 1/4 c. mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. honey roasted peanuts, finely chopped

Health Tip: Try sunflower seed butter a s a substitute if peanut allergies are a concern. It provides the same amount of protein with more fiber and iron than peanut butter per serving.


1. Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds or less. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, powdered sugar, honey, vanilla and melted butter. Stir in cereal and oats, and allow mixture to cool.

2. Stir in raisins and chocolate chips.

3. Measure portions with a 1-teaspoon measuring spoon and form into balls OR prepare the mixture in a greased 13- by 9-inch pan for bars.

4. Roll each ball in finely chopped peanuts, pressing to coat (or cover with peanuts if using pan). Store in refrigerator.
