-          2tsp vanilla

-          ¼ cup peanut butter (or other nut butters)

-          2-3tbsp brown sugar

-          2-3tbsp oatmeal (you can omit if you want a “smoother” mixture)

-          2-4tbsp skim or non-dairy milk (add 1tbsp at a time until desired consistency)

-          1/3 cup chocolate chips

 

Directions:

-          Combine all ingredients, excluding chocolate chips and milk in a food processor
