ingredients

  • 120g porridge oats (use gluten free oats if your child has an intolerance to gluten)
  • 60g raisins or dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon runny honey
  • 80g almond or peanut butter

method

  1. Add the oats and nut butter to a bowl and mix together (for a smoother texture pulse in a blender for a few seconds)
  2. Add the vanilla, honey, cinnamon and raisins or chocolate chips and mix to form a sticky dough.
  3. If the dough is too sticky, add more oats. If the dough is a bit too dry, add more nut butter to get just the right consistency.
  4. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls.
  5. Keep in refrigerator and enjoy for up to a week!
