Newbie – A treat the kids can make!

My girls love to help me in the kitchen. We have a lot of fun, but they are getting to that age where they all want to try cooking and creating their own fun treats. This is one we came up with together. Its a good combination of a few other treats we have posted on here, but it was there favorite add ins. You can easily adapt this recipe to fit the flavors of your family, assuming you all like chocolate treats!  Give it a try and let the kiddos make it there own.

Coconut Oatmeal Drops


2 cups oatmeal

1/4 cup coconut flakes

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp peanut butter


2 tsp hemp seeds

2 tsp ground flax seeds

2 tsp sesame seeds

any crushed nuts or seeds your family enjoys. If you add in a lot of extras alter the amount of oats slightly.


Melt chocolate, coconut oil, and peanut butter together either on the stove or in the microwave. Stir in all remaining ingredients and evenly coat with the chocolate mixture. Scoop mixture into 1 tbsp size scoops on to parchment paper and cool in fridge or freezer for about 20 minutes. Store any left over in a freezer bag and store in freezer. Makes about 2 dozen depending on size. Great for after school snacks or lunch boxes!
