Notes

*I've only used Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter that was chilled in the fridge (this is where you should store your natural peanut butter anyway). Since all nut butters vary in flavor/consistency, you may need to adjust the amount of honey/oats to get the correct consistency for the bites. 
Helpful tips: If your bites are too loose and sticky to form into balls, add more oats. If your bites are too dry and crumbly, add more honey.
