Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup old fashioned whole rolled oats
  •  ½ cup raisins or dried cherries or dried cranberries
  •  ½ cup unsalted peanuts or cashews
  •  ⅓ cup shredded coconut unsweetened or sweetened
  •  1 cup natural creamy peanut butter no sugar added
  •  ⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  •  1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  •  ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  •  ½ teaspoon salt
  •  ½ cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Add oats, raisins, peanuts, and coconut to a food processor and pulse a few times to break up the ingredients a bit, but not completely.
  2. Whisk together the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the dry mixture and stir until well combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Refrigerate the mixture for 20 minutes.
  4. Use a 2 tbsp cookie dough scoop to portion out the oatmeal dough, then use your hands to roll each portion into a ball. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container between layers of parchment paper to prevent sticking.
