Directions

  1. Whisk flour, oats, ground flax seed, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl; add peanut butter and honey and mix until thoroughly combined. Shape mixture into teaspoon-size balls.
  2. Pour about 1/2 the sesame seeds into a large frying pan and cook over low heat, stirring or shaking the pan every minute until fragrant and toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer toasted seeds to a bowl and toast remaining sesame seeds.
  3. Spread toasted seeds into a wide, shallow bowl. Roll peanut butter balls in the toasted sesame seeds to evenly coat.

Easy to make! I shaped my balls into small logs so they would pick up more of the sesame seeds. I'll work on getting this gluten free, then it will really be special! Thanks for the inspiration!

The ingredient list so attracted me to this recipe that I failed to notice that these cookies were no-bake. After retrieving everything, and I was very excited to use healthy stuff, I looked for the preheat temperature. Double checked, seeing no eggs in the ingredient list, proceeded. The dough was a perfect play dough consistency, and rolling them in the seeds went well since they were not messy sticky. I used a small cookie scoop and got 30 balls, calculating to 84.8 calories per. Needed more seeds; the large container of seeds I used were already toasted so saved a step. Great flavors to our taste since we love everything in them. This will be a fun cookie project for my granddaughters since they can safely make them from start to finish; want them to learn healthy cookie making. Hope the batter consistency is as good when I make these again with gluten free flour. Thank you for creating this recipe. Doemama
