Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Clusters

My Mama gave me a big bag of old fashioned oats.  I like to eat oatmeal as much as the next guy but you can only eat so much.  Plus, it's August. In Louisiana.  It's 90 degrees at breakfast time!  Not exactly the "chill in the air weather" that makes you crave a steaming bowl of oatmeal.  So, I made some little treats that are cool, portable and popable.  They taste so good you won't even realize they're good for you!  Bonus:  this recipe has only 4 ingredients!



1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (quick cook oats will work too)

Melt the peanut butter, milk and chocolate chips in a medium sized pot over low heat.

Stir it often until it is melted and smooth.

Remove it from the heat then stir in the oats.

Mix well to thoroughly combine.

Drop by a Tablespoon (I use a small scoop) onto wax paper (or a buttered plate or a silicone mat).

Chill in the fridge to let them set up (at least 10-15 minutes).  Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.

These little clusters are like granola bars rolled into a ball!  So yummy!  They have a great chewy texture.  They're not too sweet (no added sugar).  They're chocolatey.  Plus, they are good for you!  That's a win win right there!
