, no-bake chocolate chip #cookie

With just 5 simple ingredients, they’re easy to make and are a really great way to get #kids

. Layla absolutely loves making them with me, and it’s something (at the age of 5) that she can pretty much do all on her own!
I love #cooking
with kids because it’s really wonderful to see them get excited about creating something for the whole #family
from scratch. It fosters creativity, inspiration, ownership and a love of food.

INGREDIENTS for these "Cookie Monster Bites":
🥄 1 cup rolled oats or quick oats
🥄 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter or any nut butter will work!
🥄 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips
🥄 1 tbsp maple syrup increase to 2 tbsp if you want it to be sweeter
🥄 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
🥄 Pinch of sea salt
📌 In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together the oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt until combined.
📌 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
📌 Taking small handfuls of the mixture, roll them into small balls 1-2 inches in size. Or you can use a cookie scoop. Place them onto the baking sheet.
📌 Refrigerate the bites for 30 minutes or until solid. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge (they will last at least 1 week, and likely 2!)
