All You Peanut Butter Oat Bites

I'm trying to cook more snacks from scratch for my two boys, instead of buying a ton of junk using coupons. In that effort I noticed these Oat Bites in the April All You and bought the ingredients. The list of ingredients is short and all easily available at the supermarket and the recipe is easy enough that my four year old was able to help me in the kitchen.

The color of my Oat Bites looks a little dark because my sons were impatient and the mixture was still slightly hot when the chocolate chips were added. The effort of rolling the balls was slightly time consuming, especially with impatient children. The worst part was that I had to add more honey due to the fact that the balls wouldn't stick together. The end result of the recipe was okay. My four year old was less than impressed, my two year old like them. I thought that they took more effort than the taste was worth, they were just okay, nothing spectacular. The recipe did use accessible ingredients and is better for you than many cookie recipes. For that reason, I might give them another try in the future.

Here is the recipe if you want to try them Peanut Butter Oat Bites.
