Nicole's Homemade Peanut Butter Treats

We like to make our own peanut butter but feel free to purchase creamy or chunky for this recipe.

Homemade Peanut Butter:
15 ounces of unsalted peanuts
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1.5 teaspoons honey
1.5 teaspoons peanut oil
Place peanuts, salt and honey in food processor.  Process while drizzling in all of the oil slowly. Scrape down the sides and pulse to mix.  Store in an air tight container.

Peanut Butter Treats:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cups hot water

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix the flour and oatmal together then add the peanut butter and hot water. You might need to add flour if its too sticky.  Knead the dough well and make into balls, big or small depending the size you want.  We like to do ours golf ball size.  I place them on a greased cookie sheet, flatten with a fork and bake for 40 minutes.
