1/4 Photos of No Bake Granola Balls
Healthy snacks that kids (and grown ups) will love! I originally got the recipe from Whole Foods, then changed it up a bit. This is dairy-free and vegetarian. NOTE: I have many a time made these without toasting the oats and coconut and it works out just fine that way as well :)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar (lately I have been just using 2 T of Splenda instead of this)
- 1/4 cup chopped mixed nuts (I like to use almond slivers and chopped walnuts mixed)
- 1/8 cup raisins (I use golden ones)
- 1/8 cup dried cranberries (May sub with dried blueberries or dried cherries)
- 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread oats and coconut on a cookie sheet. Place in the oven and toast for about 12 minutes, stirring twice, until lightly browned.
- 2Meanwhile, combine the peanut butter, honey and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring continuously, until ingredients are thoroughly blended and sugar has completely melted (about 2 minutes).
- 3Add the toasted oats and coconut to the peanut butter mixture, followed by the nuts, raisins and cranberries. Stir to combine. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.
- 4Working with dampened hands, shape into bite sized balls and refrigerate for an hour. I usually let mine sit out for about 15 minutes prior to serving as we like them a little gooey.
