Day 35: Nutritious homemade treats

This is one of my go-to recipes for when I want something sweet but I also want to keep on top of my nutrition. They’re a great post-gym nite too!

The original recipe came from a supermarket magazine some years back but it was such a long time ago now I can’t recall which one it was. 


100g oats

100g peanut butter

50g honey

50g dried cranberries


Melt the peanut butter and honey in a large pan over a gentle heat until fully combined.

Add the oats and dried cranberries and stir thoroughly until all completely mixed in.

Take small lumps from the mixture and roll into balls.

Place the balls on a tray and then pop in the fridge to firm-up.

These keep really well in a sealed tub or jar in the fridge. 

Why not add some spices or replace the  cranberries for another dried fruit? Or what about some melted dark chocolate drizzled over the top? Mmmmm.
