Recently I have been CRAVING peanut butter and for someone with a peanut allergy this can cause BIG problems. I was determined to find something that would cure my craving and after trying about a thousand different crackers, ice creams, snacks and more I have finally found something that provides the peanut butter flavor I was looking for that’s also pretty healthy!
- Rolled Oats
- Peanut Butter (I can’t eat peanut butter so I used a peanut butter substitute)
- Chocolate Chips
These are so easy to make.
First I poured the whole package of rolled oats into a mixing bowl.
Next, I added about a quarter cup of honey.
Then I added all of the peanut butter.
In my opinion it’s easier to roll them when the mixture is warm so I stuck the mixing bowl in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
Then I add in the chocolate chips. Sometimes I add a lot and sometimes I only add a little.
The fun part of this recipe is that you can add in a lot of things – you could add sunflower seeds, flax seed, chia seeds, nuts – the sky is the limit!
You can make as much or as little as you want which is what is great about this recipe. You just need to add enough honey and peanut butter to create a “sticky” mixture you can roll into balls.
If you don’t want to roll it into balls you can just pour it into a baking pan and compress the mixture by laying a piece of wax paper on top of it and squishing it down (like you would do if you were making Rice Krispie treats).
