Kid Tip:Let your child dump the ingredients into the bowl, help stir, and roll the bites into balls.Reminder, honey isn’t safe for kids under 1 y/o, so this recipe is for 1+.We love these oats because they are glyphosate free.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and then mix well to combine. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
Scoop mixture and then roll each between your palms until they are uniform in size.
