Ingredients

  • 1/2  Cup  crisp cereal, such as Kashi Go-Lean Crunch or Medifast Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Cereal Crunch
  • 2  Tablespoons  semisweet dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4  Cup  natural peanut butter

Directions

Place peanut butter in a microwave safe dish. Microwave until soft, about 30 to 60 seconds. Add chocolate chips, and stir so that chocolate melts and blends with peanut butter.

Pour in the cereal and carefully mix until pieces are evenly coated. Make 1 to 2 tablespoon cookie-shaped pieces with your hands or a cookie scoop. Place each cookie onto a plate lined with parchment paper or foil. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes or until ready to serve.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
