  • 1/3 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter

  2. Using a melon baller or spoon, spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture out and form into a ball with your hands. We are aiming for bites that are about 1/2 inch thick in diameter (smaller than a golf ball!). Place the balls onto a baking sheet.

  4. Once all of the balls are coated, place in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm. Once hardened, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for about a week or the freezer for up to a few months.
