A healthier take on the famous "No Bake"...Cookie that is!

These little beauties are what I came up with in my quest to make healthier treats.

You really should try them.  Don't look at the ingredients and decide..."Gross!"  I am a huge dessert junkie and I think they are really good.  They don't taste a whole lot different.  One thing though when using no sugar and whole grains you will have a "grainy" aftertaste.  This isn't a bad thing.  We are just so used to everything being refined we have to get used to it.  For me it is super exciting to eat a cookie that is good for me and I don't have to feel guilty about eating.

Here's What you'll need:
1/2 cup of all natural peanut butter
1/2 cup of raw honey
1/2 cup of chocolate chips (I used some organic, dairy free, soy free chips, but any will do)
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of wheat germ

Combine the honey and peanut butter over low heat until combined.  Stir in chips until melted.  Remove from heat stir in oats and wheat germ.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper lined sheets.
Now just give them a might be surprised how good they are!

~One more time...take a know you want to give them a try~
