Have you ever had no-bake cookies? My mother-in-law used to make them, and oh my goodness. So good. Chocolate, peanut butter, sugar, oats. Oh, and butter. Yeah, totally healthy. Or not.
This oatmeal is basically like no-bake cookies in a bowl…without all the calories, fat and sugar. In fact, It’s sweetened with honey – no refined sugar. Make sure you add the ground flax for extra health benefits. You can’t even taste it and it’s chock full of fiber. Peanut butter adds necessary fat and we all know that oats are super good for you – a great source of whole grains that fill you up and give you lots of energy.
Even better? You throw all the ingredients in a bowl at night, mix and chuck it in the fridge (cover it first – that would be messy if you didn’t). The next morning? Healthy chocolate peanut butter goodness. Eat it hot or cold. I actually really enjoy it cold. And it’s so filling, I can hardly even get through the entire serving. So sometimes, it’s breakfast AND morning snack. All for 6 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
So what are you waiting for? I bet you have all this stuff in your pantry. You need to make this. Like, right now. Go.
