The Cinnamon Jungle Munch from Envirokidz is our favorite and it packs so much cinnamon flavor that it is the perfect thing to use in a variety of dishes aside from simply eating it as cereal. I pulsed two boxes of this cereal to use in baking (in the place of graham cracker crumbs) and with the rest I made an out of this world Cinnamon Raisin Energy Balls recipe that it will have your kids jumping for joy each afternoon after school. I used what I had on hand so by all means if you don’t have raisins- skip them- or instead use dried cranberries or plums or mangos. Pulsed diced mangos are the bomb:) just a little sidenote! The key to these energy balls are getting them tightly packed so that they don’t fall apart on the kids while they eat. Pulsing the oats and cereal beforehand allows for the texture to stay intact but creates a better environment for the “glue” to hold all the pieces together. The “glue” I am referring to is NOT corn syrup but rather honey and peanut butter with a hint of pure vanilla extract. These balls are a delight. They will put a smile on your face and energy in your body. The Envirokidz line is perfect just as is but when you want to mix things up a little bit opt for these easy No-Bake Cinnamon Raisin Energy Balls.
- 1 cup pulsed/ground EnviroKidz Jungle Munch in Cinnamon
- 1 cup pulsed gluten free or regular quick cooking oats
- ½ cup raisins, pulsed
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 TBSP honey butter
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mash (yes mash with your hands) until you can easily form the mixture into balls. Store the energy balls in a ziploc container in a cool dry place for up to 2 weeks (if they can last that long in your house:)
