A Healthy Dessert Snack Thing I call Moxie Nosh

Hello friends. So I am totally obsessed with this treat I made.
I have been on a bit of a health food and fitness craze lately so I am just not sure if I should call it a “dessert” or “healthy snack” or what because it is natural, healthy, dang good and tastes just like cookie dough according to my nieces. I think it’s better.
Meet Moxie Nosh.
I have been wanting to incorporate oats and such healthy things into my diet a little better and saw a recipe for some healthy energy bites on Pinterest which reminded me of some peanut butter balls from my childhood that had oatmeal. One thing led to another and a healthy and amazingly delicious snack was born.
Happy Birthday Moxie Nosh.
{Insert Picture HERE—-> I forgot to take a picture of it so I’ll get one posted someday}
I named said Moxie Nosh because….well…. it’s pretty self explanatory.
Moxie = Energy, Courage, Spirit
Nosh = A snack
This snack is full of natural ingredients that will give you the energy you need to get through the rest of your day! Plus it only takes 5 minutes to make.
I love it. I’m a fan.
Moxie Nosh
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup ground Quaker cinnamon oatmeal squares
Handful of chopped walnuts
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup of small dark chocolate chips
Dump all your ingredients into a bowl and stir it up with a spoon so all the ingredients are evenly distributed and moist. Put this in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes (if you can resist) so it can firm up a bit. Use a very small cookie scoop (or a 1/2 Tablespoon) to portion out the mixture into ball shapes. You do not need to refrigerate this unless you want to for a stiffer texture. These balls of health will last for several days I am sure (maybe even weeks!) ….. don’t know because they don’t last that long if you know what I mean. Change up the ingredients and see what combos you can make into a delicious treat!
Make sure your chocolate chips are the normal small chips. My bag of
chips were larger for some reason and I think it would be better with
small chips. If you have the larger ones like I did, go ahead and just
give them a quick chop so the chocolate pieces aren’t so hard to bite into. 
You really can substitute most of these ingredients so just see what is in your pantry and use that (That’s how I made this and it was amazing). I am going to be trying a million different kinds of recipes and see if I get some more winners using alternatives such as almond butter and such.
Now, these are healthy but they also have a high caloric density (30 calories in each 2 tsp serving) so don’t think you can just scarf a whole tupperware full and not pay the price. The best part about this nosh is that it is actually VERY satisfying and quenches your sweet tooth and your snack tooth. It’s pretty much the most awesomest thing next to my Vitamix I just bought. =D
So instead of reaching for that snickers or Reese’s peanut butter cup, reach for THIS!
Be Healthy. Enjoy.
What ingredients would you put into your healthy balls of nature?

  1. I am totally going to try this! Thanks Sarah! I will let you know if I discover any amazing combos of ingredients. Do you use natural peanut butter then? I have the Kirkland kind that stays in the fridge.

  2. Found out about your blog through FB posting of your father for the Divine Office. Glad I hit the link to check out your blog. Will try these.
