When I saw these fun, simple cookies on Faith’s blog they reminded me of Estela’s High-Fiber Marshmallow treats which she made the other day, and I’ve made in the past. I figured another dessert made with Fiber One was a safe, healthier option for dessert.
High Fiber Haystack Cookies from An Edible Mosaic
10 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup dry roasted peanuts
2 cups Fiber One cereal
Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in a microwave or double boiler. Stir in peanuts and cereal. Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate to set. Yield: 21 cookies.
Nutrition Information (per cookie): 89 calories; 5 g. fat; 0 mg. cholesterol; 33 mg. sodium; 13.7 g. carbohydrate; 2.3 g. fiber; 0.8 g. protein
Result: A crunchy, chocolate treat…and very rich! If you melt the chocolate in the microwave and use parchment paper-lined cookie sheets, this is quite possibly the easiest, no-fuss dessert to make. Have 3 ingredients and 5 minutes…you’re done! Enjoy!
And a quick garden update!
Most everything has sprouted and has been moved to a sunny area on our dining room table — the formal one, not the one we use every day. 😀
Class #1 of my second quarter went well last night. It’s a smaller, quieter bunch as far as I can tell. I’ll have to liven them up some 😀 Yesterday was also my last day at one of my dialysis clinics — I’m moving to a clinic with a larger patient population and a bit closer to home (1 hour vs. 1 hour and 10 minutes – ugh). It was hard to leave, I love those patients! 🙁 But I’m sure I’ll love the new ones just as much 🙂
Weigh-in tonight. I don’t have a good feeling about this one, gr!
Question: Have you ever had a dessert made with Fiber One or another whole grain, high-fiber cereal?
