    I had a hard time getting it to mix in the food processor. I added water a couple times and then it was too pasty. Flavor is a bit bland

(2)***** Add in oats, peanut butter, and vanilla and process until well combined. Add a few tablespoons of water if the dough is dry. (3)***** Use your hands to form the dough into balls. (4)***** Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set. Enjoy!

    These were very yummy. I made mine with cashew butter - mm... I ended up adding about 1 TBSP of water to help the dough stick together.

    Wow! I ate a spoonful before I put them in the fridge and they're so good! I used crunchy almond butter and Sunsweet Deglet Noor dates. Already looking forward to what variations I can make with this.

    Tastes great! I ground the oats however to make an easier to shape dough. Also added a bit more vanilla because my peanut butter was a bit overpowering.

    I really liked this not too sweet snack. Great to take instead of muesli bars when I'm out for a days cycling. My daughter thought adding some chopped apricots would add a zing them.
