Purpose of this blog is for me to try out recipes from my Weight Watchers cookbooks and hopefully I can find some really yummy, low point recipes to share. But this site is NOT an official Weight Watchers site.

Raw Peanut Butter Ball Cookies- 1pt each

These are fast to make up, but then need about 30 minutes in the freezer before eating.

Raw Balls
2 TBS Peanut Butter
1 TBS powdered milk
2 TBS chopped almonds
2 TBS oats
2 TBS honey

*if you don't want to use peanut butter you can substitute with Almond Butter or Nutella, same amount and will be approximately the same calories and points. Also if you don't have powdered milk you can use oat flour or add 1 more TBS of chopped almonds or oats.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Roll into balls. Makes 8-10 balls. Place balls on freezable surface (plate, cookies sheet, plastic container). Place in freezer for 30 minutes- 1 hour prior to serving (until hard enough to hold, but soft enough to eat). Once taken out of the freezer they will hold together for about 45 minutes before they are too soft again and will need to be refrozen.
Also if you're a raw food eater, this is considered an acceptable "raw" food. It is also a good recipe for those with food allergies (dairy, peanut, gluten) with minimal changes. I made them for my friend's son, who is allergic to peanuts, dairy, gluten, soy... and a ton of other things) I omitted the powdered milk and oats, used almond butter instead of peanut butter, and 3 times the amount of almonds and an extra tsp of honey. Turned out great.
