Honey Butter Oatmeal Balls

Recently I have been CRAVING peanut butter and for someone with a peanut allergy this can cause BIG problems. I was determined to find something that would cure my craving and after trying about a thousand different crackers, ice creams, snacks and more I have finally found something that provides the peanut butter flavor I was looking for that’s also pretty healthy!

Ingredients:

  • Rolled Oats
  • Honey
  • Peanut Butter (I can’t eat peanut butter so I used a peanut butter substitute)
  • Chocolate Chips

These are so easy to make.

First I poured the whole package of rolled oats into a mixing bowl.

Next, I added about a quarter cup of honey.

Then I added all of the peanut butter.

In my opinion it’s easier to roll them when the mixture is warm so I stuck the mixing bowl in the microwave for about 45 seconds.

Then I add in the chocolate chips. Sometimes I add a lot and sometimes I only add a little.

The fun part of this recipe is that you can add in a lot of things – you could add sunflower seeds, flax seed, chia seeds, nuts – the sky is the limit!

You can make as much or as little as you want which is what is great about this recipe. You just need to add enough honey and peanut butter to create a “sticky” mixture you can roll into balls.

If you don’t want to roll it into balls you can just pour it into a baking pan and compress the mixture by laying a piece of wax paper on top of it and squishing it down (like you would do if you were making Rice Krispie treats).

ENJOY!

Hi, I’m so excited your here! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my blog Dishes and Denim! Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world. Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family. I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running. Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority. I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens. If there was an award for overanalyzing – I would win every year. I’m a hopeless romantic. My favorite color is turquoise. My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores). If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
