Prep: 10 minutes

Freeze: 2 hours


1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup powdered peanut butter

1/4 cup lite pancake syrup

1 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener that's about twice as sweet as sugar)

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Line an 8" X 8” baking pan with parchment paper.

Pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour in a food processor. Add 1/3 cup water and all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Puree until completely uniform.

Once firm, store in the refrigerator. (They’re also good slightly frozen!)
