Have you watched The Chew on ABC? It’s like Pinterest for your television!
When I saw this recipe I knew it would make a great cookie replacement for my sweet tooth.
The Chew’s Oatmeal Energy Clusters
2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
And here’s how to put them together:
1. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, chocolate chips, and coconut.
2. Add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, salt. Mix well until evenly combined.
3. Chill mixture in the refrigerator for an hour, then roll out balls about an inch in diameter.
4. Store in an airtight container.
Have fun adding ingredients that your family loves. Chia seeds, white chocolate chips, raisins or cranberries… the sky really is the limit!
These Oatmeal Energy Clusters are great for a mid-day pick me up. If you lack energy mid-day, reach for The Chew’s Engery Clusters instead of the cookies!
