Cost: 3


  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats Old-fashioned oats can be used (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips or regular size semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter


  •  First, measure the dry ingredients (oats and chocolate chips) in a medium-size bowl. This will prevent the add-in from sticking to the same a measuring cup the peanut butter is measured in.
  • Next, add peanut butter and honey.
  •  Stir until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  • Using a 1-tablespoon-size cookie scoop or tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop up 12 balls and shape into round balls with your hands.
  • Store in an air-tight container or zip-top bag until ready to eat. (At least one hour for best texture)


Old-fashioned oats can be used but the mixture will be slightly crumbly so a teaspoon of water may be added or a little more honey if you aren't watching the sugar-intake.
