Haven't tried this. Came from a Weight Watchers message board. Number of servings is a guess.
- 8 1⁄8 ounces general mills Fiber One cereal (one sleeve)
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons peanut butter (optional)
- Melt 1 bag of good semi-sweet chocolate chips in microwave in a large bowl on high for about 2 minutes or until melted (stirring occasionally).
- Once melted, mix in 1 sleeve of Fiber One cereal (8.1 oz). Once well blended, use a tablespoon to scoop out rounded cookies onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate until set (about 1/2 hour). Can freeze portions until ready to eat.
I used a mixture of chocolate and butterscotch chips because that is what I had. I used 5
T mixed and 1 1/2 cups fiber one. I made 11 cookies each a Tbsp size, comes to 48 calories and 3 grams of fiber which equals 1 point using the old ww system. Nummy
To experiment, I scaled the recipe down a good bit - 1 1/2 cups cereal to ~1/2 cup chips and a small dollop of PB for 12 good-sized haystacks. They set up quite hard in the fridge but if left out, they crumble when you try to bite. All that said, I still love them! It is a way to get my chocolate fix without a lot of guilt. Thanks for sharing!
I plan on making them in my special education class in the near future. I will be leaving out the peanut butter due to a severe nut allergy in my school, but I look forward to trying them.
