These are fantastic!! I am giving these 5 stars however I did make some changes. I didn't have wheat germ so I used 1 scoop (2 T.) of hemp powder. Also used honey instead of apple juice concentrate. I've made peanut butter balls before and these sure beat the other ones to pieces. I like the difference of putting coconut oats and cinnamon in them. I make a double batch freeze them on a plate then transfer them to a ziplock bag and store in freezer. Read More

I like this recipe alot..I love peanut butter. Here is an idea that will make them even better. Grind some oatmeal in a blender to make oat flour. After mixing ingredients roll in oat flour and chill. You can also roll in an oat flour/cocoa powder mixture too. Read More

These are so simple yet SO good. I used honey instead of the apple juice and liked that flavor combination quite a bit. I threw in 2 or 3 tablespoons of Grape Nuts to give an extra crunch and made 24 balls with my cookie scoop and stuck them in the freezer on wax paper. Take them out and eat them one at a time. They're more of a candy than a cookie but they are REALLY good. Read More

These are a comfort food for me my mommy made similar ones for me when I was little. I did make some adjustments do to what I had on hand. I didn't have natural peanut butter just used the 'fatty stuff.' I had no wheat germ so I used graham cracker crumbs. I also didn't have apple juice concentrate so I used apple sauce (a bit less than 1/4 c.). Then I added a few Tbsp. of honey. To chill I lined a paper plate with waxed paper placed the 'nuggets' on that then put the whole plate in a lare ziploc bag and froze. The only negative I have is that the recipe only made 11 'nuggets' would have to increase the ingredients next time. P.S. If you hadn't realized already i wasn't really going for sugar-free. (BTW: coconut has sugar in it) Read More

Our family loves this treat! I love the fact they are healthy and the kids consider them as much of a treat as cookies or candy. I always make at least a double or triple batch because we gobble them up so quickly. Read More
