Ingredients [ For 2 to 4 people ] [ Preparation time : 15 minute – Cooking time : 20 minutes ]
- 1/3 cup peanut butter, almond butter OR your favorite smooth no-stir nut or seed butter (cashew, sunflower or pumpkin seed butter (heated slightly until liquidy)
- 1/4 cup liquid honey (brown rice syrup, agave syrup or date paste will work as well)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup finely shredded coconut (leave out and use ground flax seed, oat flour or protein powder instead of coconut if you are not a fan)
- 1 cup old-fashioned or quick oats (use gluten-free if necessary)(I used Bob’s, Red Mill)
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries (or dried fruit of your choice)
- chopped nuts or seeds
- chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, mix together heated nut/seed butter and honey until smooth.
- Stir in shredded coconut, oats, and mix until well combined. Add optional add-ins if desired. Fold in cranberries.
- Wet hands slightly and form dough tightly into 1″ – 1.5″ balls. Or, if the dough doesn’t stick together place dough in the fridge for 30 minutes prior to forming dough balls so it’s easier to handle. Press additional cranberries evenly around the dough, if desired.
- Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer until ready to enjoy.

- **You can form these into cookies or granola bars by flattening the dough in an 8×8 square pan if you prefer not to roll them out.
