Honeymoon Balls

As we were preparing for our honeymoon, I asked Daniel if there were any particular snacks he really enjoyed… he described “a delicious, chewy snack ball, with oatmeal, raisins, and chocolate and sweetened with honey… really sweet…” He didn’t know where the recipe had come from, so with those specifics and some help from Google we concocted a treat that is now a special tradition for us. Making them together for the first time on our honeymoon was a delight and we have enjoyed them many times throughout our first year. <3 <3 The fun thing about this recipe is how amazingly delicious, healthy, and easy they are — all at the same time.

 

Honeymoon Balls

1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey (or to taste)

 

Mix all ingredients together; shape into 1″ balls and refrigerate or freeze until firm. Store in airtight container in fridge.

 

“As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you; continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” John 15:9-12

My beloved was coming home for brunch, and, not feeling well earlier this morning, I did not have much time to put together something complicated… I am so grateful to the Lord for the creativity He is so faithful to give. The variations are almost endless with this “recipe,” so have fun! 🙂
