How To Make peanut butter breakfast balls

  • 1
    Beat together the peanut butter, honey and vanilla.
  • 2
    Combine the remaining ingredients, except the unsweetened coconut. Mix well and beat into the creamed mixture until well-blended.
  • 3
    Roll into one-inch balls and then roll in the unsweetened coconut. (This is more fine than the sweetened coconut inside the balls.)
  • 4
    Allow to air dry for a little while and then store in a plastic container in the refrigerator.
