Well I seem to be on quite the ball kick lately. They are just so easy to make and pack! These little guys can be made in a matter of minutes (danger!).
I love sweets as we all know but I am really trying to stay away from the baked good variety since they are full of flour and white sugar. So, while I know these are not exactly health food as they have chocolate chips and agave nectar in them, they are a very small treat which is sometimes nice to enjoy at the end of the day.

Makes 20 balls
2 cups crisp rice cereal
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup chocolate chips
6 tablespoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
In a large mixing bowl add the peanut butter, chocolate chips, agave nectar and vanilla. Microwave for 35-45 seconds. Immediately add the cocoa powder and stir. Add the cereal and stir.
Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Now, before you start rolling the balls get your hands slightly wet so the mixture doesn’t stick to you. With damp hands begin rolling the mixture into balls, re-wetting your hands as needed. Keep them in a covered container in the freezer until you are ready to eat. Please let them thaw for at least 10 minutes before eating. I don’t want anyone to chip a tooth!
