My favorite way to eat these
besides right off the plate and into my mouth is to top off my yogurt or oatmeal with 4-5 of em’ to add a little much needed crunch! Think of them as the sweet version of croutons. Croutons on your salad, chocolate peanut butter clusters on your dessert.
Don’t let your freezer ever be without a tupperware of these.
(p.s i’ve been known to just eat, like, 10 or 12 of these right out of the container since they’re that good. + at under 10 calories a piece, how can you go wrong??)
10 Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters
makes 12 clusters
15g all bran cereal (or 1/2 of 1/3 of a cup)
14g (60 chips) Lily’s Dark Chocolate baking chips (my fav to use – found @ wholefoods!!)
1 tsp PB2 mixed with water to desired consistency
*optional extra melted chocolate for drizzling
Measure out your bran cereal and chocolate chips into separate bowls. Heat the chocolate in the microwave in 10 second intervals until melted. (usually takes about 40-50 seconds) Stir to ensure that it’s smooth, then dump in your dry bran cereal.
Mix the cereal in with the chocolate to coat and form a sticky type of mixture. Sometimes I crush the bran cereal a bit, sometimes I find a need a little more chocolate to help it mend better. Adjust accordingly.
Pop this mixture in the freezer for 2-5 minutes to help it set a bit, then scoop out small clusters onto a parchment or tinfoil lined plate. Drizzle on your PB2 and extra chocolate if you’re adding it, then place the plate back into the freezer for at least 10 minutes, or until ready to use.
