    These are delicious as well as quick and easy to make. I used coarsely chopped raisins in place of the mini chocolate chips. I also added a few tablespoons of a chia seed/flaxseed/hemp blend in place of some of the oats. And I used crunchy PB because it’s what I had. Very good!

    I just made these. I've been searching for a low-carb treat to satisfy my sweet tooth. I followed the recipe to a "T" and they are super dry. The taste of the artificial sweetener is bitter. I'm going to tweak it a bit to fit my tastes better and still be low carb. It's just ok. I don't recommend at this point, but we'll see if I change my mind after some adjustments.

    Haven't tried them yet but they look delish. I don't care for chocolate. Could I sub butterscotch chips or something similar?

  • Not recommended

    I don’t recommend this recipe because the mixture did not hold together. I had to add about a cup more peanut butter to hold the shape. They are also very dry. Make sure you have something to drink when you eat them.

    I just finished making and tasting... definitely satisfies my sweet tooth. Am looking forward to trying many of the Food Hub recipes. Thank you

    These little jewels are so similar to the No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie. I did say "similar" because we are omitting a stick of butter and a cup of sugar! I did not care for the after-taste with the Stevia, but it didn't keep me from eating them. I made them again and left off the Stevia. I used Almond Milk. I can tell you that they taste wonderful! No Stevia needed.
