Peanut butter energy balls (instant), my version of making quick & easy sweet treat where no cooking / baking is involved. Such a pleasure to make such instant recipes. Isn’t it !

My 2 daughters made these in June, on the occasion of Father’s day to show their love towards their Dad. And that card was made by my little son! 🙂 These energy balls, tasted just great that my Kids loved them too much!!

Health Benefits of ‘Peanut Butter Energy Balls’:
