These 3-Ingredient, Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Balls are simple to make and will take you back to your childhood with the first bite!
I grew up in West Virginia in a school that offered home cooked, fresh meals daily. We would have homemade biscuits and gravy, oatmeal and pancakes for breakfast and spaghetti, yeast dinner rolls and scrumptious desserts.
Those were the days before food was overly processed or schools were being told to provide meals that are supposed to be “healthy” but the kids never eat.
Our “cooks” were grandmas who loved to make meals and would come in before the sun came up to start preparing for the day.

Nothing fancy but they sure bring back some memories. With only 3 ingredients, they’re simple and a healthy treat for my kids in their lunch boxes or as an afternoon snack!
