A twist on an old favorite.  You can’t really taste much difference.  The dried fruit helps enhance the flavor of the chocolate and peanut butter — without added sugars.  Which means you can enjoy this as a nice breakfast treat, or snack throughout the day.  It is filling, healthy and delicious!

COST:

Dried Prunes – $2.29
Oatmeal – $2.00 (on hand)
Almond slivers – $1.00 (on hand)
Natural Peanut Butter – $2.00
Lemon Juice – $1.00

TOTAL: $8.29 – 4 servings = $2.07

RECIPE:

1 C Water
1 C Dried Prunes

1 TBSP Lemon Juice
2 TBSP Natural Peanut Butter2 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 TBSP Unsalted Butter 
1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (I used a couple leftover instant oatmeal packets)
optional: 1/4 C slivered almonds, coconut flakes, graham crackers, chopped peanuts, granola

1. Heat a medium sauce pan, and combine the prunes, water, and lemon juice.  Let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the mixture looks like a thick paste. 

2.  Stir in honey, peanut butter, cocoa powder, butter and salt until mixed together completely. Stir in the oats, and any other ingredients. Remove from heat.
3. Either use a non-stick cookie sheet, or spray a baking sheet or plate with cooking spray.  Drop 1 tablespoon of the cookie mix onto your prepared pan.
4.  Refrigerate until just chilled and set, about 20 minutes.

ENJOY!
