OATMEAL PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

These are so yummy! You can double the batch and freeze some for later, too.

3/4 c. each of:

  • uncooked oatmeal
  • nonfat dry milk
  • chunky peanut butter (smooth honey-roasted Skippy is good too)

1/2 c. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. each raisins and wheat germ (optional)

Stir oats + nonfat milk together. Blend peanut butter, honey and vanilla together until smooth. Stir in oat mixture (and raisins if you want).

Shape dough into small balls, roll in more oats.

Shaping into balls /rolling in oats takes the most time – but it goes quickly if you take the bowl to the living room floor and do it while watching a favorite TV show or movie. :o)

You can use wheat germ for an even healthier choice. They sell extra crunchy wheat germ in the PB isle. OR I’ve read another version calls for toasted coconut flakes – that sounds pretty dang good to me- just haven’t tried it yet!

Store in an airtight container in refrigerator…& enjoy!!
