IBS Friendly: Peanut Butter Balls

My mother hinted that she would like something sweet, so I searched through the recipe book, The 28-Day Plan for IBS Relief by Audrey Inouye BSC RD and Lauren Renlund BASC MPH, that I’d gifted to her and found a recipe for no-bake peanut butter balls. As I reviewed the recipe, I realized it was similar to the one that she made when my brother and I were little. So I mentioned this to her, and she knew immediately what drop cookies I was referencing.

Since I was unsure if she would like these, I made a small batch. I modified the recipe included in the book; Peanut butter, rolled oats, puffed rice, maple syrup, cinnamon, bittersweet chocolate chip morsels were the ingredients listed in the book. I eliminated the puffed rice and I added some spirulina and turmeric. Results? They loved these little peanut butter bites, so I tripled the recipe this evening.

My daughter took a picture of one of the containers of these little bites right before they were placed into the refrigerator. After 10 minutes of putting them in the fridge, they should chill enough to eat. I look forward to doing some more experimenting with this recipe.

Last evening, I made dill beans using my VacMaster 215. You can eat them immediately. I ate a few; however, they were even more flavorful today.
