Soy Nut Butter Balls


I recently bought a container of "I.M. Healthy Soy Nut Butter" which is made totally nut free. The look, feel, texture are just like peanut butter. Kinda scary actually! My pa/tna son tried some on toast, but didn't particularly care for it. He didn't like how it stuck to the roof of his mouth. See, it is like PB!

Anyway, being a avid baker (and eater) I decided to try one of my alltime favorite Christmas "Cookie" recipes, using the Soy Nut Butter instead of, "you know what". They are OUTSTANDING!

Here goes.

1 Cup Soy Nut Butter (I used I.M. Healthy Soy Nut Butter with Honey but others will probably work as well) 1 Cup Icing Sugar 1 Tablespoon butter 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix above ingredients. Add

1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies (or rice cereal that is safe)

Roll into small balls. (Very small - I call them poppers cause you can pop one in your mouth without biting!)

To finish them off, either roll them in icing sugar or dip them in melted chocolate (my favorite). I store them in the fridge and they keep quite well.

I think I'm going to try this with pumpkin seed butter I bought a couple of weeks ago. It sounds delicious. I'll probably have to add a little more sugar though because the pumpkin seed butter is unsweetened.

What is icing sugar? Powdered sugar?

Sounds good!

Yes, Icing Sugar is Powdered Sugar. (Cdn vs US I guess!)
