1 cup raw oven toasted old fashioned oats
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips)
1-2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons non-fat milk
Pinch of salt
PS- if you like, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of shredded coconut to the mix :)
Place oats into bowl. Add peanut butter, chocolate, sugar and vanilla and mix ingredients. Add milk and knead with your hands until mixture becomes a "dough." Now gently shape into round bites approximately 1-1.5 inches in diameter. Enjoy at room temperature or chilled!
