I saw this recipe in the May 2015 Rachael Ray Magazine. I immediately knew this would be something my daughter would love doing with me and I had almost everything I needed to make them. Who doesn’t love a healthy no bake treat!
The original recipe called for peanuts, but I didn’t have them, so I subbed almonds instead. You could also sub a different nut butter or a different dried fruit.
Ruby and her friend had fun helping dump the ingredients into the food processor and rolling them in the coconut. They wouldn’t even look up for a picture!
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/4 toasted wheat germ (usually found with the cereal at the store)
- 3 tablespoons of water
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined.
Pour into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips and cranberries.
Roll into balls and then roll the balls in the shredded coconut. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
