The other day I was making two things at once. I was putting ingredients for bread in my bread machine, and I was making peanut butter energy balls in another bowl. I measured a fourth cup of oil for the bread, and dumped it in the peanut butter balls bowl! The peanut butter balls are 1 c peanut butter, 1 c. oatmeal, 1/4 c. honey, and a handful of chocolate chips. I had doubled the recipe. And then I dumped in oil!
I didn’t really want to trash that much peanut butter and oatmeal, so I decided to add a couple of eggs and a bit of gluten-free flour, and I baked them as cookies. They weren’t bad! They were a little crumbly, so last weekend I did the same thing, only I left out the oil and flour. They were a better texture. They aren’t sweet like a cookie. They are more like a granola bar. They are also less messy to eat than the peanut butter balls, and just as healthy. (note: By “healthy” I don’t mean diet food. These have a lot of calories. But, usually when I eat them, I’m looking for a lot of calories because I’m about to run, trying to have a little snack before dinner, etc. They also aren’t healthy like a fruit or a vegetable. But, better than a processed granola bar or Power bar.)
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. oatmeal
1/4 c. honey
handful choc. chips
I baked them at 350 for 13 minutes.
