Chewy Oatmeal Snack

I make this snack on the days that I feel like snacking on store bought crackers that my husband likes to keep around and when I don't have any homemade crackers left.  The delicious homemade crackers doesn't last longer than 2 days in our home.  I need to start making double and freezing the extra.

Chewy Oatmeal Snack
1 T. Peanut Butter (I use MaraNatha Organic Brand)
1 T. Coconut Oil
1-2 t.  Raw Honey
1/3 c. Rolled Oats
a sprinkle of Cinnamon
(amounts are approximate)
optional - add in raisins, etc.

Mix them all together and eat it. It only takes a few minutes and it satisfies my craving.  The real fat from the coconut oil and peanut butter keeps me going until dinnertime.

Now if I could just remember to make double of this to share with Tornado boy.


  1. That looks very much like the peanut butter balls a neighbor gave us when we first moved in. It became rather an obsession for me for about 3 months. :-D She didn't use coconut oil, but that would be a great way for me to get more coconut oil into my diet!

  2. That sounds like a fun name, I couldn't think of a cute one. This snack came about thinking that granola would be a good replacement for crackers but didn't want to cook it.
