1 cup Peanut Butter, or Other Nut Butter Such as Almond
1/3 cup Honey
1/2 cup Dried Fruit Such As: Dried Cranberries, Raisins, or Dates
3/4 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, Divided
1/2 cup Oats
1/4 cup Sesame Seeds
1/4 cup Finely Chopped Nuts (Walnuts, Pecans, Etc.)
2 Tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips (Optional)


  1. Mix the peanut butter and honey until well combined. Stir in the dried fruit and 2 Tbs of the coconut. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Place the remaining coconut, sesame seeds and nuts into 3 separate bowls. Using a spoon, scoop small heaps of the peanut mixture from the bowl; roll into 1 1/4-inch balls. Rolling is easier if you form a rough ball, roll in the coconut, and then continue rolling into a more perfect shape. Roll each finished ball in more coconut, sesame seeds, chopped nuts and chocolate chips. Arrange the balls on a plate, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
