Happy Weight Loss Recipe Wednesday, Peeps!
Today's recipe is a real sweet treat! And if you LOVE chocolate and peanut butter, you are going to want to be my BFF. Seriously.
Last night, for the first time ever, I made Chocolate Peanut Butter Haystacks using Fiber One cereal. Here's the recipe and the directions:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Haystacks
1 Cup Fiber One Cereal
1.5 oz milk chocolate, broken up (You can use a 1.5 oz Hershey Bar)
1 Tblsp. creamy reduced fat peanut butter
Place chocolate and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl.
In microwave, melt chocolate and peanut butter together on high until smooth (stirring every 30 seconds).
Stir chocolate and peanut butter mixture together until well blended, then add Fiber One cereal to melted chocolate.
Gently toss till coated.
Drop onto wax paper, making 6 stacks (1 WW Point each). Place in the freezer for fifteen minutes, until chocolate hardens. Store in refrigerator. YUM!
Don't let the fact that these haystack cookies look like little piles of ca-ca fool you (OMG! They really freakin do!). They are delish!
And speaking of ca-ca, I must offer y'all word of caution...
For those of you who've never had Fiber One cereal before, there's a WHOPPING 14 grams of fiber in every cup! Holy freakin crap, people! Literally!
And when you consume lots of fiber, you know what happens, right?
If you don't, here's the deal...
You MUST drink lots of liquids (water is your amigo) when you consume mucho fiber! That's what'll keep you pooping like a normal person.
On the other hand, if you eat crap loads of fiber (pun intended), but do not drink enough liquids, you will poop rocks. Plain and simple.
And Dudes? I'm not talking pebbles here. I'm talking RIVER ROCKS! I'm talking BRICKS! I'm talking BOULDERS that will make you feel like you are pooping out pieces of Mt. Rushmore!
Trust me, people.
It's no freakin fun.
So, drink your water!
And for this fancy schmancy lesson in biology/nutrition?
You're very welcome, dudes!
