We are big fans of the good ol’ fashioned chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookie over here… maybe a little too big of fans! My husband could easily demolish a whole batch in .2 seconds if given the chance. And I’ve been known to be that way with really any sweet if you leave me alone long enough. #dirtylittlesecrets
That being said, I usually do what I can to “healthy up” any desserts I make on those days that I just get the hankerin’. Today was one of those days. And plus, I had some butterscotch chips that I needed to use up. Now presenting: Healthy No-Bake Scotchies!
Healthy No-Bake Scotchies
1/2 c. Butterscotch chips
1/2 c. White chocolate chips(optional)
3/4 c. Peanut butter
1/4 c. Honey
1 c. Oats(Old-fashioned or quick oats work just fine)
1/2 c. Pumpkin seeds
1/4 c. Flax seeds
Heat medium/large pot over medium heat. Toss in chips, peanut butter, and honey. Stir until melted. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Stir until combined. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Place in fridge for a few minutes to set, and voila! Easy Peasy. Makes about 16 cookies.
These make such an awesome mid-morning or afternoon snack. Packed with fiber and healthy fats! Enjoy!
