crunchy peanut butter
nonfat dry milk powder
I made this recipe with my five year old son. We rolled them in chocolate graham crackers instead of coconut. Easy and delicious!
I have just finished making these and do find them very sweet. I used the 16 squares of low fat graham crackers and found I had 1 cup of crumbs not 1/2 like someone else said. I added all the crumbs and mixed well. I didn't have any powdered milk so I skipped that. I used a teaspoon to scoop out the balls and put them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. I put the coconut in a large baggie. I picked up each ball and rolled it in my hand then put it in the coconut . Once I had 2 or 3 balls in there I shook the bag and then rolled it in my hands again. My hands stayed fairly clean and I had no trouble with the coconut sticking. I just put them in the freezer because I found them very soft and also want to save them for Christmas.
Yum! These are addictive! They end up looking like coconut donut holes. Not wanting to dirty another bowl, I tried mixing it all in the food processor... I don't recommend it! IT was too thick and made even the 14-cup monster food processor struggle. I finished up stirring by hand. I used low fat graham crackers and reduced fat peanut butter. They work out to be 1 point each for anyone on Weight Watchers! I wasn't sure if 16 graham crackers meant 16 sections or 16 whole ones. I used 16 sections, whic was equivalent to a half cup of crumbs.
Yummy! These are delicious, easy, no-bake cookies! And they're fairly healthy, too. Great way to use up graham crackers and peanut butter. I couldn't get the coconut to stick to them, though, so I left them without. Still very tasty!
I used cinnamon grahams and Adams crunchy peanut butter. We LOVED these. I don't know how I'd never heard of these before but I'm kind of glad I didn't because they're dangerous. The kids and I just absolutely love these.
I just threw it all in a bowl and mixed it (other than crushing the graham crakersfirst and leaving the coconut to roll in). I used creamy PB, and gingerbread graham crackers because that's what I had on hand. I used a cookie scoop to make the balls...no mess. They were great. I made these in elementary school YEARS ago, and they were just as good as I remember.
Definitely need a sweet tooth to eat these. Next time I'll try natural peanut butter since the honey made them sooo much sweeter than I expected. I followed the recipe to the t and found it way too sweet. At time the peanut butter was too overwhelming and others, the honey.
I'll definitely make these again and will try natural peanut butter instead.
These were delicious! I used chopped chocolate chips (1 cup) since my kids do not like coconut. I was in a hurry and had no patience to roll a bunch of balls. I lined a large flat tupperware container with wax paper, leaving enough on ends so I could lift it out easily, and for step 3 shaped the mixture in the tuperware. Topped with the chopped chocolate chips. Let set in refrig. Lifted out the wax paper and then cut into small bars. Will need to figure out how to get the chocolate chips to stick better (others have commented they had the same issue with the coconut). Next time, I might first line the bottom of the tupperware with 1/2 of the chocolate chips and place the remainder on the top.
