For a richer, nuttier flavor, toast the oats. Simply heat oats in a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally until golden brown (about five to seven minutes).


  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons nut or seed butter (peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter)
  • 3 tablespoons milk, any kind (soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, dairy, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, etc.)


  1. Place the chocolate chips, nut butter, and milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and mix until smooth. Stir in vanilla and honey.
  2. Add oats, walnuts, and dried fruit. Place spoonfuls of the oat mixture into a mini-muffin pan or other divided container. Press firmly to pack oat mixture in. Place in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from pan and enjoy. Store extras in the fridge.
