Graham Cracker Cookie Balls

I love cooking/creating things in the kitchen with my little guy.  And with this added time at home (give me all the snacks), I thought it was the perfect time to whip up a fun, kid friendly (and adult friendly) snack that little hands can help you prepare! 

These Graham Cracker Cookie Balls are a spin off of an old Brunch N'Cupcakes recipe, linked here.  PB, Rolled Oats, Graham Crackers and Mini Chocolate Chips come together to make an easy grab and go snack, or sweet after dinner treat!  Little hands can help crush graham crackers, dump and stir the recipe together.  Older kiddos can help roll the dough into balls if they like.  

Graham Cracker Cookie Balls
Makes 12-15 Cookie Balls  

1 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Peanut Butter (I used Jiff Natural, you could also use Sun Butter if have a PB allergy) 
5 Graham Crackers 
1/3 Cup Honey (can add 1/2 cup if you would like a little sweeter) 
1/2 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips 

1-Place graham crackers in a zip lock bag, and crush until you have graham cracker crumbs.  If you have a kiddo cooking with you let them crush the bag with their hands or roll a rolling pin over the bag to crush the graham crackers. 
2- Combine peanut butter, crushed graham crackers, oats and honey in a large mixing bowl (little hands can help with this step too if cooking with a kiddo).  Mix together until well combined.
3- Stir in mini chocolate chips.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and begin shaping "dough" into one inch balls.  Continue rolling dough into one inch balls until no dough remains.  Place in fridge for about an hour to allow balls to firm.  Store in an air tight container for about a week.
