You will need:
1/2 c of any nut butter (I used peanut)
1/3 c honey (I like a local, raw honey)
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 c rolled oats
1/2 c coconut flakes
1/2 c other add-ins, dries fruits, nuts, etc
In a medium sized pot, over low heat warm the nut butter and honey. Once liquid, remove from heat and stir well. Add in the vanilla, salt and cocoa powder. Again, mixing well. Then mix in the rolled oats, coco flakes and other add-ins and mix well.
Allow to cool slightly. I let mine cool on the counter, but could stick it in the fridge if you would like it cooled quicker.
Roll into small, bite sized rounds. Should make between 1 1/2 and 2 dozen depending on how big you make them.
Next time I make these, am thinking to use almond butter instead of peanut butter, add in some chia seeds and dried cherries! Probably will add a little more honey also, because it was a little dry. Can't wait! Let me know what flavor combinations you try and like!
