Say that three times fast! Quinoa Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bites, Quinoa Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bites, Quinoa Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bites! Ahahaha! Or, as I like to call them Quinoa PBOCC Bites. I made these because my children were pleading with me to make cookies. I think all this healthy cooking has gotten to them. They wanted something sweet. I obliged and wanted to see if they would like cookies with a healthy spin on them. Turns out, I created something that would pass for a cookie, and something I would also feel comfortable grabbing out of the freezer for those on-the-go moments. I would even eat a couple of these for breakfast if I were in a pinch. My one and five-year-old loved these. My two-year old wasn't quite so sure.
As a side note, I much preferred these after letting them sit all night. They are a little too crunchy straight out of the oven, but they softened overnight. Then I place them in the refrigerator. If you leave them out, they tend to soften more and more each day, which can make them not so delicious.
