This is close to a recipe I made when I was like 5 years old (I was still in preschool). Can't remember the recipe we used...but I do know that there are some parts (I remember some of the stuff we used...the only things I am sure we did not use, were the cinnamon, and I know we didn't use juice) I remember we were missing the coconut (or for some reason it wasn't in my batch) which was a good thing, because (though I hadn't known it when we made them) my Grandmother, whom I was living with at the time) is allergic to coconut. But I have been looking for this recipe for YEARS...would LOVE to make em again :) (bring back fun memories!)

I love peanut butter... and chocolate! Great combination! One of my favorite snacks are the Kellogg's FiberPlus(R) Chocolatey Peanut Butter bars because they too combine chocolate and peanut butter. So good!

I wonder if I could use Almond Butter instead of Peanut Butter??? Peanut Butter tends to be too sweet for me....

This looks like a yummy variation on the peanut butter balls we used to eat as kids--PB, powdered milk, honey, and a little powdered sugar. I like the idea of using oats and coconut in them. Yum!

Mmm, I would totally make this recipe and add chopped dates - I love that sweet/savoury combination. However, it will probably be a cold day in hell when I actually eat or recreate a recipe which is almost 100 calories per mouthful, I mean, the amount of willpower needed to stop at one or two just makes it not worth it for me

These look delicious!!! I will have to try them, I might make some modifications too, like nuts or maybe something chocolate. I bet Nutella would be a great addition too :)

Yeah, sy. I'm thinking of the stuff that's just peanuts (and I think sometimes it has a little tiny bit of salt). I prefer my Jif!

Mmmm... looks yummy! Lil, what do you mean "real" PB? Like the natural PB?
lilkimbo lilkimbo 7 years
These look good, but I normally hate the taste of "real" peanut butter, so I'm guessing I wouldn't like them.

This is hilarious-- my sister had a similar recipe from a kid's cook book when we were little. I think it was peanut butter, powdered milk, and honey....? I can't remember specifically. I can't stand coconut so I'd probably modify this, but it's a good idea if not a funny memory.

this looks so delicious, but knowing me, I'd probably eat them all in one sitting :(
