These little critters are sinfully tasty and extra addicting. My 2 year old and 15 year old can’t get enough of them! If you are feeling extra naughty you can add chocolate chips to them or if you are feeling super nice add some healthy raisins. I use low fat peanut butter but I have also used other nut butters like almond or cashew too, use what you have or like best. I think coconut would mix in nicely and make them even more delicious but I have not tried that yet.
I usually make just one serving of these so I don’t overdo it but it doubles and triples nicely if you want to make more. Be careful not to add too much rice syrup or they become sticky and hard to manage. If you have a gluten sensitivity you can buy the certified gluten free oats to make these with.
