Fiber 1 Chocolate Peanut Butter Haystacks recipe

Craving a snack tonight and it had to be sweet. It's been a day of heavy exposure to sweets and goodies, but no eating. Tomorrow there's going to be cake, but today was just the torture of baking.

Fiber 1 Chocolate Peanut Butter Haystacks
Ingredients
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c low fat peanut butter
  • 1 T cocoa powder
  • 1 c Fiber 1 original cereal
  • 1/4 c coconut
Instructions
  1. Mix Fiber 1 and coconut. In larger bowl.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, warm chocolate chips in microwave (about 1 minute).
  3. Add peanut butter to soft chocolate chips and microwave (about 1 minute).
  4. Stir in cocoa.
  5. Add chocolate and peanut butter to cereal mix. Stir until coated. If the mix is a bit wet, add more cereal.
  6. Place on cookie sheet or similar in 12 small piles.
  7. Refrigerate about 2 hours.
  8. Eat!

Really enjoyed the one I tried tonight. But it's worth noting that it was probably a shortage of water that has me craving the sweets. These seem like a much better choice then the chocolate chip cookies I wanted to make!

  2. Whoops!
    I forgot to mention I used cocoa to make it a little more intense a chocolate flavour.
