I have made these three times now and I really really like them. The first time I made them I followed the recipe and I found them really dry. Still good, but definitely dry. I've modified the ingredients only slightly and I love the way they turn out now. I only use 1 cup of flour and I increase the peanut butter to two cups. I also found the addition of a little cinnamon and vanilla delightful.
This is a much healthier version of what my mom used to make me as a kid. I love 'em!
These were GREAT! I've been looking for healthy snack recipes for my kids and they really loved these, and so did I!
Thank you so much for this recipe. I couldn't wait to try it so I had to scale the servings way back and make a few substitutions, which just goes to show how flexible the recipe is. I used oat flour in place of oat bran and buckwheat flour in the place of whole wheat flour. I used sugar-laden peanut butter because I had just enough to complete my fraction-of-the recipe. Next time I will try natural to make them even healthier. I can't wait to give them to my 2-year-old to see what she thinks!
These are really great! My very picky DS loves them, and so has everyone who has tried them. What a great way to get some needed fiber, calcium & protein into my kid! Thanks so much.
These were excellent!! I made these for my mother who is undergoing chemotherapy treatments and just had surgery. She needed something high in calories, good fats, and protein. I scaled the recipe to make 10 and ended up getting 15 decent sized "special buckeye's" as I like to call them. I dipped mine in melted semi-sweet chocolate. I will definitely make these again!!
These were awesome; I loved every little bite!! I halved the recipe and made it in my stand mixer; the full recipe would not have fit in my mixer. Half of this recipe makes a huge plate full of balls. The dough was very crumbly when mixed, however, once you grabbed a little handful and squeezed it together, it holds together perfectly. I had to sub wheat bran for the oat bran since I didn't have any oat bran. The last reviewer mentioned the dry milk taste - I did not note any taste of dry milk. The most prominent tastes were honey and peanut butter. My DH and DS also loved them. I will be making these again, thanks for sharing!!
Make a small batch of these to check to see if you like the taste before you make a full batch as this makes heaps. I really don't like the dry milk in this and I had to roll these in coconut to make the taste acceptable to our tastes. Just didn't appeal.
I loved these. I made a big batch of these and now have a healthy snack for when I come home from school. Thank you
