Looking for a great pick-me-up after your workout? How about a snack for the kids? I first made these as an after school snack for the girls I babysit. It’s a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen.
Try setting out a buffet of ingredients and have them pick whatever they want for their own personalized snack.
On a paleo kick? You can also make these paleo-friendly by using almond butter instead of peanut butter and extra coconut or quinoa instead of oats.
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup coconut shreds
1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/6 cup honey
1tsp coconut oil
1tsp vanilla extract
Combine ingredients in mixing bowl.
Roll into balls and refrigerate.
Makes 15 bites.
I coated this batch with melted coconut oil and carob powder for a chocolaty taste.
