I didn’t plan on posting this tonight because I have so many other recipes I want to share with you before Christmas, which is just a couple of days away, but these were just so good I couldn’t resist!
1/4 c peanut butter
1/4 c chocolate chips
1/4 c oats
2 TBSP liquid sweetener (I used maple syrup)
Melt peanut butter, chocolate chips and maple syrup in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted and peanut butter is smooth. (Mine took 30 seconds, hence the cookie title.) Stir to combine. Add oats and stir to incorporate. Drop by the TBSP full onto plastic wrap or wax/parchment paper and chill until firm. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
My recipe made 5 cookies with a tiny bit left over, which I was more than happy to eat with a spoon. Mmmm…
I’d love to try theses cookies with a different cereal – maybe a flake like corn or wheat, or even a crispy cereal like rice crispies or crispy brown rice.
