Vegan peanut butter, molasses & oat balls

Last night I was craving something sweet yet filling so I experimented with the ingredients I had on hand and whipped up these yummy treats...

2/3 cup peanut butter 
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
1/2 cup dry oats (I used steel-cut, but any type will do)
2 tablespoons black strap molasses
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (or coconut butter, I used half of each)

In a small sauce pan, heat peanut butter and coconut oil until melted. Stir in oats. Remove from heat. Add in the molasses, maple syrup, and 1/2 cup of the coconut flakes. Stir well to combine. Form into balls, then roll the balls in the remaining coconut flakes. Refrigerate at least one hour prior to serving. (or just eat sone warm and mushy like we did lol) Enjoy!

In the Pines

Sharing some photos from our walk in the woods by the river...miss A is teething (back molars) and refused to take a nap today so I didn't get any of her this time since she was being grumpy!
