Quick to make and easy to carry, these convenient treats are great for an afternoon pick-me-up or grab-and-go breakfast. Experiment with your favorite nut butters, dried fruits and spices. We also like adding a tablespoon of sesame or poppy seeds to the mix.
Place oats, currants, peanut butter, vanilla and cinnamon in a food processor and process until smooth and sticking together. Drizzle in 2 to 3 tablespoons hot water so that the mixture comes into a ball. Using a teaspoon, scoop out a heaping spoonful of the mixture. Roll into a ball, pressing firmly so that it sticks together. Chill bites until ready to serve. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 week.
