OK to Eat at Night -- Snack # 9

No-Bake Honey Peanut Butter Cookies
These simple to make no-bake cookies contain the great flavor combination of peanut butter and chocolate, along with a little hint of sweetness from the honey.  The addition of oats adds a punch of fiber and plant protein that makes them very satisfying.  
Combine the following ingredients in a bowl:
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
3 Tbs honey
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Mix thoroughly and then use a muffin tin as the mold to form the cookies
This recipe works really well with miniature muffin tins as well.  It makes about eight 250-calorie cookies -- so one tin is more than enough.
Tip:  To cut down on calories, you can make 16 cookies instead.
