I’m always looking for ways to meet my daily fibre requirements and for many years that meant starting my day with a big bowl of Fibre One cereal. However, over the years, I’ve turned more to a intermittent fasting type of a routine and often don’t eat breakfast. In an effort to somehow get this fibre packed cereal back into my daily diet, I decided to make little cookies that essentially kill two birds with one stone. I based the recipe on the Peanut Butter/Butterscotch Chow Mein noodle cookie recipe we made when I was a kid. These little cookies not only satisfy my sweet tooth, but also up my daily fibre intake. So simple to make and quite a nice treat! I only eat one per day, so I created this recipe to make a mini batch that yields 4 cookies.
Fibre One Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Clusters
- 1/2 cup of Fibre One Cereal (General Mills)
- 1/4 cup of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
- 1 Tablespoon of smooth peanut butter
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish. (My microwave has a “melt” setting, but if yours doesn’t, I would lower the power and stir every 30 seconds or so to avoid scorching it.) I find that you don’t need to melt them completely. If you stop and stir every 30 seconds or so, the chips will melt as you stir. Once completely melted and smooth, stir in the peanut butter to combine. It will melt into the mixture as well. Stir in the cereal until completely coated. Drop by teaspoon full onto wax paper and place in the fridge to set. I keep my stored in an air tight container in the fridge. So easy and yummy!
