Kids can cook: Powerball cookies

Fun recipe for kids to make. Amazingly riffable. Take ingredients you undoubtedly already have in your cupboard and mix them up (with your hands is best! you can also use a stand mixer if you don't want to get sticky), scoop them into balls and -- voila! -- an awesome treat to enjoy and share!

You can make this with any nut or seed butter. You can make this with any dried fruit. You can add any favorite chopped nut. You can add coconut. You can add cinnamon. You can use white chocolate chips. Or butterscotch. Or toasted walnuts. You can add cocoa powder. Or M&Ms! You get to make this your own!

Powerball Cookies

Yield: 15 - 20 balls, depending how big they are


1 cup peanut butter

1 cup honey

Pinch salt

3 cups old fashioned oats

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1 cup chocolate chips, semi- or bittersweet

1/2 cup peanuts, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup dried cranberries


In a large mixing bowl or in the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together peanut butter, honey and salt until smooth. Gradually add in oats and flaxseed. Add chocolate chips, nuts and dried fruit and mix gently in your stand mixer or smush together by hand.

Use a medium cookie scoop, and scoop the dough into your hands, roll into a Ping-Pong-size(ish) balls. You can eat them right away, but they'll be less sticky after a night in the fridge. They freeze well too, layered on wax paper in an airtight container.
