1 cup granola of your choice
½ cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup chocolate chips, preferably mini
1 cup crunchy or smooth peanut butter

Spread the coconut out on a large plate or rimmed baking sheet. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Using 2 spoons, a small cookie scoop, shape about 2 tablespoons' worth of the mixture into small balls. Set them on the bed of coconut.
