How do you choose which breakfast cereal to buy?
I don’t eat cereal but everyone else does and it’s a total drama trying to choose a cereal that everyone likes – honestly, it’s like World War 3 in the cereal aisle when we try to choose what type to buy!
I think that’s how Miss Frugal managed to sneak the big box of rolled oats by me a couple of weeks ago. I vaguely remember her asking if she could get some oats for porridge but I was too busy refereeing the cereal argument going on between Mr Frugal and Master Frugal who were debating (very loudly) the merits of Krave versus Weetabix.
Long story short, we have a large box of rolled oats now that Miss Frugal has barely touched as she seems to have gone off porridge almost as soon as we got them home. I’ve made overnight oats a few times and I have plans to make strawberry and oat cookies but for today, I’ve been making 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter and Oat Bites.
They were nice but I can see how easily you can make them too dry so if you’re making them, use your judgement as to how many oats to add in. If you think you’ve added enough then you’re probably right. 😉
How to make Peanut Butter and Oat Bites
250g peanut butter
220g rolled oats
- Melt the honey and the peanut butter together, either in the microwave (in 20 second blasts) or in a heatproof bowl above a pan of boiling water.
- Mix in the oats a spoonful at a time.
- You’ll find that the more you add, the harder it gets so you might find that you’ll need to get your hands in and get squishing. Don’t worry if you can’t get all the oats in, if you add too many then the finished peanut butter and oat bites will be too dry. I find that I use more or less oats each time I make this because it depends on the consistency of the honey and peanut butter too.
- You can either use a silicone mould like I did to mould your oatie mix into bite sized pieces or you can just squish it into little balls. I prefer the moulds as I can really press them down which makes it them hold together better.
- Pop them into the fridge for an hour or so until they’re set and then you’re good to go.
