Helpful Tip

Mixture too dry or too moist?

Based on what nut butter you use, this will determine how wet or dry the mixture turns out. Even peanut butters vary based on its ingredients. Due to this, if the mixture seems too wet to form balls, simply add a little more granola or desiccated coconut. If the mixture seems too dry and crumbly, then add more nut butter or honey. Only add a tablespoon at a time with either outcome.

¼ cup white chocolate buttons (Dairy-free optional)


1. Combine well in a bowl the granola, peanut butter, desiccated coconut, and honey.
