Edible Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Tips

These peanut butter energy balls come together quickly in a food processor or high-powered blender. I like to leave little bits of each ingredient in the final product, but you can process them to a smoother consistency if you prefer a truer cookie dough texture.

If the dough doesn’t come together easily, add water one teaspoon at a time and process until you get the right texture. It should bind together easily without being wet.

Store these treats in the refrigerator for several days, or freeze for later.

  1. After you make these do they need to be stored in the refrigerator? How long can you store them? Have you tried to freeze and thaw as needed?

    1. Yes, Patty, I do store these in the refrigerator. They will keep for several days, or you can freeze them for several months. Just defrost before eating. Enjoy!
