Puffed Quinoa Peanut Butter Balls

I picked up some puffed quinoa at the health food store this weekend and decided to make a little treat with it. I have a deep and unending love for peanut butter, so that’s what I went with…

Puffed Quinoa Peanut Butter Balls - Vegan & Gluten-Free

Notes

  • The natural peanut butter that I used is not very sweet, so I used 4 tbsp of agave nectar. Adjust this depending on your taste.
  • I decided to add a tablespoon of crushed peanuts to the mixture since I was using smooth peanut butter.
  • The peanut butter I used is very runny, but if yours is on the thick/dry side, you may want to heat it up slightly beforehand.
  • I found the mixture to be too sticky to roll into balls right away, so I placed it in the fridge for 15 minutes, and it firmed-up just enough to easily roll into balls.
  • I tried making something similar a couple weeks back using puffed brown rice, but the texture seemed too chewy – and almost soggy. Regular (white) puffed rice (such as regular Rice Krispies) should work well, but it has under half the protein, so seek-out puffed quinoa if you can.

    I had no idea they made puffed quinoa – I definitely can’t wait to get these whipped up. They look like a more whole-foods (and vegan, of course) PB rice krispie ball!

        Beautiful pictures! Your dark chocolate is so dark and was wondering if you could share what brand or percentage of dark chocolate you used I have used 70 percent in the past and it has never looked as dark or good as yours. ;) thanks for sharing recipe too!

    Those are pretty darn cute. I’ve never had puffed quinoa before, but I’ve definitely eyed it up – this whole puffed grain thing was a recent discovery for me (save for rice crispies, of course). I’m all over the chocolate ones, pb + chocolate is the best ever.

    • vegangela says:

      Hi Allysia – looks like most people haven’t heard of it, but it should be available at most health food stores. I agree – PB + chocolate were made for each other!!

  4. Love this idea and I bet they would make super cute holiday “cookies” dipping in white chocolate then adding some colored sugar perhaps. I have yet to see puffed quinoa around here though. Probably have to order it.

      Hi Heather – That’s a great idea! You could even add some cocoa powder to them, or roll them in coconut or nuts after dipping them in chocolate.They’re like little healthy truffles. Look for the puffed quinoa at the health food store…

    Looks so good!! Another AWESOME (and savoury) use for puffed quinoa: Fresh’s Quinoa Onion Rings. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried those!! The recipe is in their latest cookbook; they’re quite labour-intensive, but absolutely worth the trouble.

    These look so good! I like to make these ball-kind of treats with rice krispies cereal… but the natural and organic kind (Nature’s Path). I find the traditional cereal absorbs too much of whatever liquid you mix with it and they get soggy. The natural cereal always maintains its cruch and crisp. But I will definitely hunt for puffed quinoa next time!!!

    Reply
    • vegangela says:

      Thanks Jodi. It’s funny that you say that because I had the completely opposite result when using brown-rice cereal. It absorbed all the liquid and made the balls all soggy. Weird! Anyway, let me know if you make these and how they compare for you!

  15. Whoa. These look amazing! I just discovered puffed quinoa, and I am in love…and being from the midwest, “buckeye” balls are a favorite holiday treat – I’m bringing these to Thanksgiving this year, and I bet they’re going to be just as good as the traditional treats, and will be a bit healthier, too!

    I didn’t have puffed quinoa, but I used Erewhon’s Crispy Brown Rice cereal, instead. These were fabulous! I also have a chocolate fondue recipe (adapted from http://veganrecipes-idahovegan.blogspot.com/2008/02/award-winning-vegan-chocolate-fondue.html), and I dipped these in the fondue, then froze them for about 20 minutes.

      Hi,

      I just tried to do this, and used this exact recipe from livestrong to make my own puffed quinoa and it burned instantly! I used coconut oil and that may be why. I was really bummed because I wanted it to work. Going to try Trader Joes to see if they sell puffed quinoa. I have a friend that actually boiled her quinoa and let it sit to cool, then made these and it actually worked well.

        Yikes! Thanks for letting me know. I think I’ll stick to buying store-bought puffed quinoa! I like the idea of using cooked quinoa though… Will have to try that. Thanks for stopping by and sorry to hear you went to all this trouble.

    Made it today. Had puffed honey quinoa. It tastes burnt (the quinoa) so the balls did, too. I didn’t live it but saw puffed quinoa without honey at target yesterday so I may try that next. It was in the pasta aisle I think.
    My fave PB is tj’s but I was out so used half Peter pan and half natural.
    Once I am full fledged starch free dairy free sugar free I expect this to taste better just for the fact my taste buds will be happier with it. I want to see if I could add dark choc chips. I am not a choc person in general.

    Something in me wanted to smush the balls into a cracker and put sliced banana on top.

    Reply
    • vegangela says:

      Hi Mer – Sorry to hear that these didn’t turn out for you. I’m pretty confident that you’ll like them if you remake them using plain puffed quinoa.Dark chocolate chips would be a great addition, as would the banana slices…

    Hi, you can puff your own quinoa very easily if you can’t find it anywhere near you. I am making mine right now, to enjoy tonight for desert. Next I am going to try it with Amaranth, maybe half & half to up the protein & fiber content, if I remember I will let you know how it turns out. (you can puff amaranth the same way as quinoa)

    I made these but the quinoa was more soggy than crunchy. It was also hard to “roll” them into balls. I basically smooshed them together to form then stuck them in the fridge. They have great flavor! I want to make another batch with some flavored nut butter I got from whole foods (which is where I found the puffed quinoa).

      You’re right that the quinoa does get a little soggy, but the balls do firm-up quite a bit once placed in the fridge for an hour or so… Hope you liked them!

    Who knew only a few ingrediants could make something sooooo good? I made these for desert last night after making your spring rolls and they were absolutley sinful. Instead of puffed quinoa I used puffed brown rice (since I already had it on hand) and it was delish! The chocolate on top was the perfect touch. Thanks for another recipe keeper.

    Hi, I too used store bought puffed millet after my attempt at puffing my own amaranth made a mess of my kitchen. I think the texture is just the same as with the puffed quinoa. I can find the puffed millet no problem but the 4 health food stores near didnt carry puffed quinoa, so I use it & it still delicious. Do you think toasting the puffed millet/quinoa would lend to more crunch?

    Also, I put these out for my 5, 7 & 8 y/o niece & nephews who thought they were the best desert ever!!

    Hello! So I found your recipe forever ago on Pinterest (I think) and I’ve been wanting to make them but no one in my city sells puffed quinoa. But today I found puffed millet :/ not the real deal but close – I’d like to think heehee – so I’m super excited! Thanks!

      Hi Mandi – Were you using the “Pin It” button on my site? I think it may have been trying to grab the “featured on Glamour.com” image. I’ve since moved it down the page. Hope that helps. Otherwise, you may want to install the Pinterest browser plugin – it makes pinning a breeze: https://en.help.pinterest.com/entries/22997343-Add-the-Pin-It-button

    One of the best recipies ever. Recipe is so simple and it makes delicious desserts. Made it many times and most loved it. Orange oil flavor (in place of Vanilla) was great. Used many differnet crushed nuts and they tasted great too.
    I bought my puffed quinoa from golden organics

    I wonder if I can do these with popped amaranth?? I pop it on the stove like popcorn and put it in snack bars, date balls, sandwiches, etc.

    Hi, Just wondering if you could use tahini instead of peanut butter?

    Reply
    • Tahini may be too runny, unless you use the unhulled kind..?

    Hi Angela!

    My friend and I were looking at your puffed quinoa peanut butter balls and were wondering if you could send us the nutritional facts for them?

    Thanks,

    Paige and Aryelle

    I love these. I get my puffed quinoa and about half of the things in my house on nuts.com They are my favorite website to order from, super duper products and service.
