Healthy No Bake Cookies
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Makes about 12 cookies
½ cup oats
¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup sunflower butter
¼ cup honey
1 Tbsp powdered sugar
1) In a small bowl, combine the oats, flour, sunflower butter and honey.
2) Mix well.
3) Use a tablespoon to portion a small amount of dough into your hands. Roll into a ball the size of a large marble.
4) Roll the balls in the powdered sugar.
5) Serve immediately or refrigerate for later.
Optional: Add dried cranberries or raisins for a little pop of color.
*Cooking tip: Lightly grease a measuring cup before adding the honey. It'll make it easy for the honey to slip right off into the mixing bowl.
Our healthy no bake cookies were inspired by the fabulous Aviva Goldfarb at www.thescramble.com.
