Step-by-step

Grown-up steps
  1. In a mixing bowl, stir together the oats, dried cranberries or raisins, cinnamon, and sunflower seeds.
  2. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, place the honey, coconut oil, and applesauce. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, then microwave for 10 seconds more at a time until completely melted.
  3. Add the honey mixture to the oat mixture. Stir well for about 5 minutes. Let the mixture cool until it can be easily formed into a ball. If it's too sticky, refrigerate for about 10 minutes or add more oats, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it holds together.
  4. Butter your hands, then roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place them on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until they harden, then store in an air tight container in the fridge until you are ready to eat them.
