I like that this has such simple ingredients and not a lot of sugar. It held together well and tasted good. Raisins added a nice chewy texture/taste. Good balance of oats to peanut butter. My boys are teens and only attracted to things with chocolate chips in them but they still liked these.
There are a million variations on this recipe, but this is the one to start from. It would be difficult to screw up this recipe. Add whatever you have in the cupboard (sunflower seeds, flax seeds,dried fruits, etc.) and adjust the rest of the ingredients so it's still moist enough to make a ball. I don't worry to much about spoiling, since they rarely last more than a day or two.
A quick batch of 16 takes 2C of oats and 1C of peanut butter, plus 3 ish Tblsp on honey and whatever other toppings you want - I've used chocolate chips, cranberries and sunflower seeds. Such a great thing to eat before a busy day or to give to friends who need a boost!
Yum!!!! These were great I would recommend adding 1/4 a teaspoon of vanilla and I put some in the fridge and cooked som they both tasted great! Thanks for sharing this dirtydave. Great recipe thums up. By cookiecookie follow me!
Just made this with my 7 yr old grandson and he loved it! Super easy and he enjoyed getting his hands in it. Tastes great following the basic recipe but will try nuts seeds and maybe choc chips in the future. Thanks for the recipe!
