Serving Size: 2 balls
Carb Grams Per Serving: 17


 1/3 cup honey
 2 tablespoons water
 1/3 cup peanut butter
 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
 3/4 cup crisp rice cereal
 3/4 cup rolled oats, toasted*
 1/3 cup dried fruit bits
 1/4 cup sunflower seed kernels
 1/4 cup lightly salted peanuts 
 1/4 cup unsweetened large flake coconut
 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


In a small saucepan, combine honey and the water; cook and stir over low heat until the honey liquefies. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and vanilla, whisking until peanut butter is melted and mixture is smooth.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine rice cereal, toasted rolled oats, fruit bits, sunflower seed kernels, peanuts, coconut, and sesame seeds. Pour honey mixture over cereal mixture; stir to coat. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours or just until firm.

Using your damp hands, shape mixture into 30 balls, each about 1-1/4 inches in diameter. Chill balls until ready to serve. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Makes 30 balls (2 balls per serving)


To toast oats, place them in a dry medium skillet; cook over medium-high heat until lightly golden and fragrant, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
