Cinnamon Crispy Balls

5 Mar

Balls are great: cute, round, bite-sized, versatile, delicious, and funny. They’re even easily transportable. The perfect food? Perhaps. These cinnamon crispy balls are certainly delightful. Not too sweet and protein-packed, they’re the perfect punctuation to a meal, and yummy as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. They may not be Schweddy balls, but they’re still pretty darn good.

Cinnamon Crispy Balls ~ yields 13 cookie-baller-sized balls


  • ¾ cup pb mixed with 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown rice syrup
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp crispy rice cereal
  • dark chocolate cocoa powder for sprinkling


1. Combine wet and sticky ingredients.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the crispy rice cereal.

3. Stir in crispy rice cereal. For more cereal-dense bars, increase the amount of cereal by 1 tbsp at a time until you achieve your desired consistency.

4. Using a cookie-baller or your hands, form the dough into 1 – 2 inch thick balls.

5. Dust ball with unsweetened cocoa powder.

Variations on a theme: dust with powdered sugar for sweeter balls, or add mini-marshmallows and chocolate chips for a decadent dessert.
