Healthy Almond Butter Balls

Sharing is caring!

The other day I was looking on Pinterest for some healthy recipes, and I came across this one for Peanut Butter Balls. It sounded so good, but I had some different ingredients on hand, so I wanted to try them out and create my very own recipe like this one. I used Almond butter so I labeled mine Healthy Almond Butter Balls.

Healthy Almond Butter Balls

If you need a yummy, healthy dessert and you are in a pinch for time, this would definitely be a recipe you will want to make. It took me about 5 minutes to throw these together. There is no baking involved or anything — and they are absolutely delicious.

  • 3/4 cup nonfat powdered milk
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl; mix well. Using your hands, roll the dough into balls about the size of large gumballs. Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, and refrigerate until set. Makes about 18 balls.

I am definitely going to be making more of these the next time I need a healthy dessert to take somewhere.

The Nut Butter I used for this recipe

When I made this recipe, I had my choice of different kind of nut butters. Jif sent me all kinds of their new flavors to try, so I knew that the almond butter would be the one that I chose to make this with.


These new nut butters come in either crunchy or creamy. They are no-stir and super delicious! While I have always been a big fan of peanut butter, I am now an even bigger fan of almond and cashew butter.

Which of these two would be your favorite to try?

You can make your own almond butter by taking almonds and placing them in a food processor. It's that easy. I will be trying this recipe.

I need to find that Jif Almond Butter. I have a feeling it will be a lot more affordable than most of the other almond butters on the shelves. I really like using Almond Butter but it's so expensive.

I found it at the store here the other day and it is around $6 for a tub of it. It is really delicious!
