*Ingredient Notes

  • Almond or Peanut butter, I’ve tried both and like them either way
  • Oats: I use gluten-free whole oats, just don’t use quick oats
  • Butter: I use earth balance, because we are dairy-free, but you can use regular butter in the same quantity
  • I use Enjoy Life Mega chunk chocolate chips (dairy free)
  • You could add nuts if you like that sort of thing
