Oh My! These are good. I used PB2 (powdered, defatted peanut butter)reconstituted. I also added some sesame and pumpkin seeds and used 3 Tbs of agave syrup in place of the honey. Thank you for this great snack recipe.
This is misleading as being healthy. The serving size of 1 doesn't include peanut butter. Adding reduced-fat peanut butter in adds almost 1500 calories and 96 grams of fat. Thanks for a tasty treat but don't try and make it something that it isn't.
These are a wonderful non-guilty treat! Next time, I would decrease the honey though, because they were very sweet.
I decided to use the dried cherries as the recipe instructions mention. I'm glad I did! It made the cookie taste like a pb&j sandwich. Yum! I was making these for a party where they would be sitting outside in some extreme heat. I was worried about them getting even stickier as they sat, so I rolled each cookie in some crushed cheerios and that worked great. A few people complained they were "healthy cookies", but I thought they were good. A few others said they wished they had chocolate chips in them instead of the cherries, but I'm sure that would affect the point count. ;) I used organic, wheat-free cheerios to make them gluten free for a guest. Thanks for sharing!
Very good !!! If there was any disappointment here, it was that weekend didn't get to have any because his wife made them and took them over for the 4th of July.. Easy to make, and us along with the others enjoyed them.. Must of made mine bigger, came up with 24. Made for Holiday Tag
So here's the situation. It was 9:30 on a school night. We're moving in a week so the stores are pretty low. There is nothing for breakfast in the morning that the kids will eat. I do have most of a box of Cheerios left over from a project in my class at school, but the kids don't like to eat that plain. So I decided to try these! I sort of un-WWed them because I used regular peanut butter, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips. Now, I don't know if it was because of the pb or the chocolate chips, but these have remained wetter than I would like. Next time I'd add more cereal. But they were quick and are tasty and use pantry staples. Thanks so much for posting!
For a WW treat that's easy to make, these can't be beat. I think these would be equally as good (and more economical) using dried cranberries. To form the balls, I tried to use a cookie scoop but they really need your *wet* hands to get the job done. Mine were not uniform in size so my yield was only 24 boulders. I've already had a couple for breakfast this morning and don't feel very guilty about it. ;-) Thanks for posting!
