  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • cup honey

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut

  • 1 cup regular rolled oats

  • ¼ cup semisweet chocolate pieces

  • ¼ cup snipped dried cherries, dried apricots, and/or raisins


  1. In a medium bowl stir together peanut butter, honey, and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in 1/2 cup of the coconut, the oats, chocolate pieces, and fruit. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.

  2. Chop the remaining 3/4 cup coconut in a food processor. Using your hands, shape peanut butter mixture into 30 balls, each about 1 inch in diameter. Roll each ball in chopped coconut, pressing slightly to adhere. Chill for 30 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
