I devised this as an alternative to expensive, over-packaged granola bars. It is quick to make and I can make one serving at a time so I am not tempted to eat too many leftovers!
- 2 teaspoons peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons chocolate chips
- 6 teaspoons rolled oats
- 6 teaspoons all-bran cereal
- Place peanut butter and chocolate chips in small microwave-able bowl. Microwave on medium 30-60 seconds until peanut butter is melted and chocolate chips are growing soft. Stir until well-blended. Add in oats and cereal. If mixture is too wet, you may need to add more cereal. Stir until well-blended and form into meatball-size balls with damp hands. Refrigerate until firm. I make these the night before and store in the fridge, then pack in my lunch the next morning. These are a great high-protein alternative to granola bars!
I don't know what happened but I could not, under any circumstances, get these to mold into balls. The proportions just seem a tad off to me. Now, I loved the flavor and we just ate it with spoons. But I'll have to play with it to make it into balls.
