Ingredients 

  • 1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1-3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup dry roasted sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 small bowl of water for dipping your hands into while forming balls

Instructions

  • Add peanut butter and honey to a large bowl and stir until mixed.
  • Add all other ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop the mixture into your hands, roll into balls, and place them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Notes

  • Keep a small bowl of water handy while making the balls because the mixture warms on the countertop while you are forming all of the balls because they have a tendency not to stick together. Dip your hands into the water and scoop the mix into your hands and roll the balls. The water will help to keep them together and also keep them from sticking to your hand.
  • I highly recommend that you store these in a zip-top bag in the freezer. There is no need to thaw them before eating them. Just grab - go - eat.
  • To freeze the balls, place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and put them in the freezer for 4 hours. Once they are frozen (or semi-frozen) put them into a ziptop bag.
  • You can store this recipe in the freezer for up to three months.
