I have said it before and I will say it again: I am not much of a baker. But last week, we were invited for a cook out & pool day at a friends house. She had the side dishes covered, so I offered to bring something for dessert. Immediately, I began scouring the internet for easy desserts. After a bit of searching, I came across a recipe for peanut butter and honey balls from 100daysofrealfood.com. They are made with 100% natural ingredients, require no baking and are gluten free!
Here is what you will need:
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup honey (or 1 bear)
- 3 cups gluten free oatmeal
- 1 cup dried fruit, nuts or chocolate chips
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
Mix the first four ingredients together thoroughly in a large bowl. Form them into balls (I used a tablespoon to help me measure them and keep them consistently sized). Finish by rolling them in the coconut. And voila, a sweet, no-bake dessert is born! You can serve them immediately or refrigerate them for later.
