natural peanut butter
gluten-free rolled oats
"large flake oats"
unsweetened, shredded coconut
Cinnamon to taste
Add peanut butter and and maple syrup to a medium microwave-safe bowl. Whisk together until well mixed.
Heat this mixture for 20 seconds at a time in the microwave, about 3 times. Whisk between heating bouts. The mixture will start to smell amazing and it will dry out a bit and become fluffier.
Add the oats and coconut to the peanut butter mixture. Stir well until throghougly combined.
This mixture is really easy to pick up so you can use your hands or a melon baller to shape into balls. (I usually start with the melon baller but then just end up using my hands because it's faster.)
Store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
Makes about 12 large "bites" or 16 small ones.
