Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bites

You know my love of chocolate, peanut butter and oats!  I'm addicted (seriously, it's a problem)!  But, I have to say that I feel pretty good about giving these to my family.  And they're so fast to make, like 5 minutes and you're done ~ and that includes rolling time.  

4 tablespoons chocolate chips, divided
4 tablespoons reduced fat peanut butter, divided 
2 tablespoons fat free milk
1 cup oats
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey

Microwave 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons peanut butter and the milk for 30 seconds.  Stir (if not completely melted, do another 10-20 seconds).  Add the remaining ingredients including the extra 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon peanut butter; stir.  Roll into balls or press into a 8x8 pan to make bars.  Place in fridge or freezer until set (at this point you can cut them into bars if you pressed them in a pan).
