No Bake Coconut Peanut Butter Balls

Years ago I used to make these  energy balls or fiber balls and they were a pretty good snack. The recipe would call for just peanut butter and oats and a little bit of honey. Not really a dessert but a great snack between meals and for that protein boost.  Then one day I discovered I could make them even better with some sweetened shredded coconut mixed in, They were really good. But something was always missing. So one day, I decided to add in some mini chocolate chips and I said, "Now we're talkin."  Finally, last  weekend, I went one step beyond incredible when I added some mini M & M's! Now I have the recipe just like I want it! Perfect! 

No Bake Coconut Peanut Butter Balls 

3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup dry milk (powdered milk)
1/2 cup creamy Peanut Butter ( or chunky if you like nuts)
1/2 cup Honey
2-3 tablespoons Mini Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 tablespoons of mini plain M & M's
1/4 cup shredded coconut or coconuts flakes
Dash of sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and mix until everything is mixed together very well. Using about one heaping tablespoon of the mixture, roll into small balls about the size of a ping pong ball. 

 If dough is too moist to roll, add more dry milk. If it is too dry, add more peanut butter or honey. Store in the refrigerator in a air tight container. Makes about 18-20 balls.
