An easy 15 minute snack made with ingredients you already have on hand. Crushed pretzels are mixed with peanut butter, honey and dried cranberries for a healthy no-bake energy ball that grown-ups and kids will love.



  • 2 cups bite-sized pretzels (about 3 ounces)
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries or raisins


  1. Place pretzels in a re-sealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or heavy-bottomed skillet until broken up into small bits no bigger than a corn kernel. Stir peanut butter, honey and cinnamon together in a medium bowl. Stir in pretzel pieces and raisins with a wooden spoon until completely combined. Roll into 15 balls, about 1 generous tablespoon each, squeezing as you shape.


The finer you crush the pretzels, the easier it will be to make these into balls. If you crush them to a powder the balls will be less sticky, but you’ll have to squeeze the mix together to get it to hold together (don’t worry, it will.)
