These are fantastic!! I am giving these 5 stars, however, I did make some changes. I didn't have wheat germ so I used 1 scoop (2 T.) of hemp powder. Also, used honey instead of apple juice concentrate. I've made peanut butter balls before and these sure beat the other ones to pieces. I like the difference of putting coconut, oats, and cinnamon in them. I make a double batch, freeze them on a plate, then transfer them to a ziplock bag and store in freezer.

I have a friend who does not eat sugar, and I wanted to make her a treat that she can eat. These were not it.

I like this recipe alot..I love peanut butter. Here is an idea that will make them even better. Grind some oatmeal in a blender to make oat flour. After mixing ingredients roll in oat flour and chill. You can also roll in an oat flour/cocoa powder mixture, too.

These are so simple yet SO good. I used honey instead of the apple juice and liked that flavor combination quite a bit. I threw in 2 or 3 tablespoons of Grape Nuts to give an extra crunch and made 24 balls with my cookie scoop and stuck them in the freezer on wax paper. Take them out and eat them one at a time. They're more of a candy than a cookie but they are REALLY good.

Yummers, these were easy and good! I used milk b/c I didn't have dry milk, and used honey instead of apple juice concentrate. My husband and kids loved them too.

These are a comfort food for me, my mommy made similar ones for me when I was little. I did make some adjustments do to what I had on hand. I didn't have natural peanut butter, just used the 'fatty stuff.' I had no wheat germ, so I used graham cracker crumbs. I also didn't have apple juice concentrate, so I used apple sauce (a bit less than 1/4 c.). Then, I added a few Tbsp. of honey. To chill, I lined a paper plate with waxed paper, placed the 'nuggets' on that, then put the whole plate in a lare ziploc bag and froze. The only negative I have is that the recipe only made 11 'nuggets' would have to increase the ingredients next time. P.S. If you hadn't realized already, i wasn't really going for sugar-free. (BTW: coconut has sugar in it)

i have a home day care and the kids love to make the cookies. i love to let them because it requires no baking so i don't worry about the kids getting burnt. we sell the cookies at the local farmers market for the people who are on diets or are diabetic, and they come back every week for more and the people love it that the kids made it.
