READY IN: 1hr 25mins
YIELD: 30 balls




  • In a small saucepan combine honey and the water; cook and stir over low heat until the honey liquefies. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and vanilla, whisking until peanut butter is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • To toast oats, place them in a dry medium skillet; cook over medium-high heat until lightly golden and fragrant, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the rice cereal, toasted oats, fruit bits, sunflower kernels, peanuts, coconut, and sesame seeds. Pour honey mixture over cereal mixture; stir to coat. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours or just until firm.
  • Using your damp hands, shape mixture into 30 balls, each about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Chill balls until ready to serve. Store in a tightly covered container in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
