Powerball Cookies

These wholesome little snacks are simple to make and rival cookie dough eaten right out of the bowl (not that we'd do that). The easiest way to make them is to combine all the ingredients in a stand mixer, but the fun way is to push up your kid's sleeves and let her mush it all by hand.

Hands-On Time: 20 minutes
Ready In: 20 minutes
Yield: 40-48 cookies


    1 cup peanut butter
    1 cup honey
    3 cups old fashioned oats
    1/2 cup ground flaxseed
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1 cup any combination of nuts and soft dried fruit (try 1/2 cup coarsely chopped peanuts and 1/4 cup each of raisins and dried cranberries)


  1. Mix together peanut butter and honey until smooth. Gradually add in oats and flaxseed. Add chocolate chips, nuts and dried fruit and mix gently in your stand mixer or smush together by hand.
  2. Roll into Ping-Pong-size balls and, for maximum presentation value, put in paper mini muffin cups. You can eat them right away, but they'll be less sticky after a night in the fridge. They freeze well too, layered on wax paper in an airtight container.
