Peanut butter and jelly

  • 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup dried berries

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (vegan) chocolate chips or cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts

Banana coconut

  • 1/2 cup banana chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract and bananas. Stir in the rolled oats, and desired mix-ins.
