Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls

Looking for a semi-healthy snack/cookie where no baking is involved?  Peanut Butter and Oatmeal make a great combination.  I’ve been combining these two ingredients for years.  I started by melting 1/3 c honey and 1/2 c peanut butter in a sauce pan on the stove.  I removed from the heat and immediately added, 1 c oatmeal, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1/4 c coconut flakes.  I waited 12 minutes for mixture to cool and added 1/2 c chocolate chips.  I used a cookie scoop to divide the batter into cookie-sized portions and placed the scoops in a covered container in the freezer for 30 minutes.  I removed  the container from the freezer and rolled the scoops into balls and placed the balls in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Eat and Enjoy!

The recipe is easily adaptable to ingredients that you have on hand.  Chopped nuts or raisins would make great additions, too.
