heaven...


in the form of a granola ball?


(no bake) Granola Balls
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup nuts (pecans or walnuts or almonds)
  • 1/8 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup crunch peanut butter
  1. Melt peanut butter, coconut oil and honey in small sauce pan over low-heat.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients (its ok if the chocolate chips melt).
  3. Drop mixture by the tablespoon into mini paper cupcake liners. Place on a plate or baking sheet, and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 week.

Variations:
Add rice cereal, dried fruits or use almond butter instead of peanut butter, endless possibilities.


I've made this at least 4 times in the last week... a little overboard? Probably. But they are so good, and good for you, I can't stop. I had to share; try it, you'll like it.

I can't find coconut oil. Have you made them without?

the original recipe called for butter instead of coconut oil... so that would work!
