Nutty Candy cuts the calories below 100 by replacing regular peanut butter with reduced fat, regular maple syrup with sugar-free, regular milk powder with instant, and granulated sugar with SplendaŽ granular.
In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, maple syrup, Splenda, and dry milk powder. Stir in oats and peanuts.
Place waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls to form 14 treats. (You could use a cookie scoop. Be sure to spray your scoop or teaspoons with non-stick spray before starting, to keep candy from sticking.)
Refrigerate for 20 minutes, and then roll the candy in your hands to give a smooth surface and shape the candy into balls. Place back into the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
