Sweet Saturday

Do you ever have a sweet craving but don’t want to make a whole batch of cookies or brownies? That’s how I feel today, need some chocolate but certainly don’t need to be tempted by a whole batch of goodness!

I remember seeing this recipe in my Health magazine for Dark Chocolate and Oat Clusters which has only four ingredients and  makes 4 servings. Bingo!!

Dark Chocolate and Oat Clusters

  • 2 tbl. peanut butter
  • 2 tbl. low fat milk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

Heat the peanut butter, milk and chocolate chips over low heat until the chocolate is melted.  Add the oats and drop 8 round tablespoon full portions onto wax paper. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.

Makes 4 servings






Easy enough, right?! Nothing like a little indulgence on a Saturday afternoon. This is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, I love the chewiness they have and what’s not to like about chocolate and peanut butter!

Next time I think I will try adding a little  nutella or some dried cherries!

Hope your weekend is going well! Smile


  1. YUM. These would be perfect to make like right now!! I wonder if I can get hubby in the kitchen to help me... :)

    Happy Saturday!!

  2. Those look amazing! I am bookmarking this recipe!

  3. Love this idea!! Usually when I crave something sweet and don't want to make a huge batch of cookies I grab a handful of chocolate chips. This looks much more satisfying! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. oh my. oh my. this is trouble.
    and with nutella? yes, please!

  5. Oh Yum!!! Thanks for the recipe. I'm making those babies tomorrow.
    Visiting from the Friday blog hop. So nice to meet you. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  6. Genius! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll have to give it a try.

    I found your blog from carrots n cake, by the way :)

  7. I have that problem ALL the time!!! Thanks for the quick and easy recipe to combat it!

  8. I truly appreciate recipes that don't make a big batch sometimes....these look perfect.

  9. I love recipes for single people. And I love recipes even more than have few-simple ingredients. I'll have to whip up a batch of these this weekend.

  10. I agree with your other commenters. Less is more! And only four ingredients. These look super yummy!

  11. Oooh, these look delicious! I love recipes that call for a few ingredients, likely to be on hand already. Especially if chocolate and peanut butter are involved. :) Hope you have a great week!

  12. Those look very yummy!! Following from the blog hop. Hope you can follow back.
    God Bless,

  13. Hi Kristy! Visiting you from feed me tweet me follow me home friday! I am now following you on blogger, google and twitter! These cookies sure are divine! I have been looking to reduce flour in my life and these are just the ticket! Please stop by A Moderate Life and say hi, especially on tuesdays for our wonderful hearth and soul recipe hop! its tons of fun! All the best! Alex

  14. yesss that craving hits me quite often! these look like they hit the spot

  15. This is such a great idea to just make a small serving. I usually make full batches of cookies, scoop the batter into balls, and freeze them. Then I pull out as many dough balls as I want and bake them off whenever I have a cookie craving.

  16. YUM, I will be making these soon!!! Thanks for sharing....

  17. Oooh, these look delicious! There's barely anything tastier than the PB & Chocolate combo. YUM!

  18. Those remind me of something similar from my childhood! They look incredible.

  19. I have that feeling all the time...want one not a dozen or more hanging out in the kitchen staring me down every time I walk by. Do you think this recipe would work with raw almond butter? I would think I am going to try! Thanks for sharing this.
