Ingredients

  • 1 cup regular or quick cooking oats
  • cup walnut halves and pieces
  • 2 tsp honey
  • ¼ tsp teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of coarse salt

Instructions

  • Toast the walnuts and oats: Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the oats on a small sheet pan and walnuts in a single layer on another small sheet pan. Bake at 8-10 minutes, turning once to prevent browning. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • In a small food processor or blender, pulse ¼ cup walnuts into a fine flour. Take care not to let it turn to paste. Pour onto a small plate and set aside to use as garnish.
  • Add the remaining 1 cup toasted walnuts to the processor. Process until a walnut paste (walnut butter) forms. 
  • Add the walnut butter, toasted oats, honey, cinnamon, and salt to a medium bowl. Stir to combine evenly. Scoop a heaping spoonful of the mixture into your hand. Roll into a 1-inch ball or press into a parchment-lined pan for squares. Roll in (or top with) the crushed walnuts.
  • Enjoy right away, refrigerate in a sealed container for 3 days, or freeze for longer storage.
