I like quick and easy foods- I don’t make a lot of desserts for my kids and I usually over think any sweet things I DO make them… I try so hard not to use unhealthy ingredients that I just end up … not making anything.
I’ve been wanting to make a recipe with Bob’s Red Mill Museli that my kids would eat. Granted, I could have bought all the ingredients separately but I’m going to just say out loud how I don’t really have time to measure some days… So, this recipe is quick, delicious and kid approved. Plus, it has the *appearance* (and reality!) of health so it’s a popular dessert to bring to health conscious groups of friends!
So, here it is- these are delicious and you can fool yourself into believing that they are healthy too.
“Trail Mix” No Bake Cookies
-2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Museli (gluten free mix of rolled oats, brown rice crisps, raisins, dried apples and cranberries, sunflower seeds, almonds, roasted soy beans, pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes)
-1 cup Bob’s Mill Rolled Oats
-1/8 cup toasted Pumpkin seeds (not really necessary- I just added them for some extra crunch)
-1/2 cup Raisins
-1 stick of butter
1/2 cup Silk Soy or Almond milk
-1 cup peanut butter or sunbutter
-2 cups of sugar
-2 tsp vanilla
In a saucepan, melt the butter, milk and sugar together. Keep on a low boil for 1 minute then take off heat and stir in the vanilla, peanut butter and remaining ingredients. Let the pan sit for about 5-10 minutes before dropping a spoon full of the mixture on foil or wax paper. Let them sit for about 45 minutes before storing.
