Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Bites

It has been a while since I shared a recipe that my son Will and I have made together.  Today’s recipe for Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Bites are a huge hit with him (and the rest of my household might I add). 

We have made these together at least a handful of times and he asks me at least once a week if we can make them again. These are so simple to throw together and really easy for the little ones to help with.

I saw this recipe on The Chew a few months ago and knew I had to try it with Will.  Will does most of the measuring and stirring with a little bit of help from me.  He enjoys helping me in the kitchen and of course likes helping me eat our creations. 

With these Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Bites I put them in the refrigerator for about an hour to make sure they are hard and not falling apart.  You can also freeze an extra batch or any leftovers for later.  Just pull one out of the freezer 20 minutes before you are ready to eat it to let it soften.

When I make a batch of these I put half in the refrigerator in an airtight container to eat during the week and half in the freezer.  These are the perfect little snack when you are on the go and need a bit of protein.  The coconut and honey sweeten them nicely making them a great dessert option too.

Another great thing about these little bite sized snacks is that you can vary the ingredients each time you make them.  Try raisins instead of chocolate chips, or dried cranberries.  Maybe use white chocolate chips or agave nectar? Experiment with these and create your perfect little bite sized snack!

Can I roast my oats and coconut to give it more texture?

I think you totally could. I have not done that but I don't see why that wouldn't work. I would just make sure it is completely cool before you use it in the bites.
