I got this recipe from a friend at church...not sure where she got her hands on it. But I sure am glad she did. In honor of her fantastic discovery, I've officially named them after her.
I don't know if that's legal.
First, melt together the peanut butter (I use Smuckers Natural...it is surprisingly...natural. There's a rather large amount of sugar in most peanut butters. But you probably knew that.), butter, coconut oil (you can use butter instead of this, but the coconut oil makes an identical final product while being a tad healthier), and honey.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the oats, wheat germ, and craisins.
Sidenote: how is it possible that all the fancy food bloggers I've ever seen only prepare food in perfect sunlight with magical countertops and no dirty dishes or peanut butter jars in the background? Do they never make anything at ten o' clock at night just because it needs to be eaten pronto?
And you're done! I think they taste a lot like no-bake cookies. Am I the only adult left on the planet who will still admit to loving no-bake cookies? I hope that didn't cause you to abandon the possibility of making these. They're the best no-bake cookies you'll ever have. Hope you
