Peanut Butter Honey Oatmeal Clusters

Quick no-cook Peanut Butter Honey Oatmeal Clusters can be finished with coconut or melted chocolate for a fast sweet treat.

I was looking through my old recipe box the other day and came across this recipe for Oatmeal Clusters that I've never made. I've had the recipe so long I don't even know where it came from but I know I copied it from somewhere or someone as the card is in my scribbled handwriting. It looked easy enough so I gave it a try and we really liked them. I think we both prefer them with a little chocolate drizzled over the top but the coconut ones are very good as well. 

These are quite similar to Lori's Peanut Butter Balls with Sprinkles that I posted back in 2015 (Where does the time go?) but different enough that I decided to post them as well.

These are quite rich with the peanut butter and honey and I find one to be quite sufficient. Others may disagree and wish to indulge in more than one at a time. 😋 I'll leave it up to you. 

I think these would be excellent to take along on a hike or bicycle ride to replenish lost energy.
