Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (you can also use almond, cashew, or sunflower butter)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Preparation

1. Place the oats in a food processor or blender and pulse until finely ground.

2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the peanut butter and honey.

3. Add the ground oats to the peanut butter mixture and continue to stir until thoroughly combined.

4. Using 1 tablespoon of the mixture at a time (I like to use a mini ice cream scooper or a spoon), roll into balls or logs.

5. Place the coconut in a separate bowl or plate and roll the balls in the coconut to completely cover.

To Freeze: place balls on a sheet tray and freeze for 30 min. Remove, place in a ziploc bag, label and keep frozen up to 3 months. They're delicious to eat right out of the freezer, too.
