A great recipe for kids to make. No baking! These cookies are so nutritious, kids can eat as many as they want. Just don't tell them.

I made this for my husband and kids. It was pretty rich and tasty. I didn't exactly find it simple though as it was sticky and a bit messy to assemble. A word of caution: you honestly do not need that much honey. Next time I would maybe do more like a half cup. Read More

My kids loved these and I dare adults to eat just one! It's a bit sticky so I added extra oats (about 1/2 cup) and kept them in the fridge. Yummy! Read More

This is such an easy and surprisingly tasty treat! My little brother really loved rolling them in chocolate jimmies (we didn't have any coconut!) and my siblings really liked them. I do think that they are a little to sweet however and the dough was pretty sticky. If I make them again I will cut the amount of honey to 1/3 cup to solve both of those problems. Thanks for sharing!

These are delicious candies/cookies but you might really want to refrigerate the dough before shaping the balls. As other reviewers already mentionned it should be great to drizzle some melted chocolate on top of the moonbeams or even to dip them in melted chocolate! Great way to include fiber in your peanut butter cravings. Read More

I loved this recipe when I was in elementary school and had been looking for it for some time - thanks! We leave out the coconut flakes and fold in things like nuts dried fruits or chocolate chips to change up the flavor a bit. Great snack for a long trip - boosts energy without a sugar rush! Read More
