PB and Oat Bites

I find it interesting that if I present treats like these as “cookies” my oldest son (14) will eat them happily, thinking they are junk food. The toddler doesn’t ask, he just chomps away. So lets call them cookies I think, or better “cookie dough”. Our secret, OK?

PB and Oat Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp raisins
  • 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Hulled Hempseed
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter or favorite nut/seed butter
  • ¼ cup honey (or agave nectar for vegan)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Directions:

Add the oats through hemp seeds to a high-speed blender work bowl (used my Ninja) or a food processor bowl. Process until the oats are finely chopped.

Stir the wet ingredients together in a large bowl, add the dry and work together until mixed fully. Scoop out 1 Tablespoon balls and roll gently with your hands. To make into cookies flatten the balls with your palms, press with fork tines if desired. A disher works well for making the balls.

Makes about 21 balls. Refrigerate after making, tightly covered – they taste best after chilling for a couple of hours.

    I make a version of these too. They’re perfect when you want a late night snack but don’t want to indulge too much. These look really good!
