These are definitely meant for a snack-you can make the sugars a little lower by eliminating the chocolate chips. This is a good way to get just a taste of chocolate, not a whole cookie or candy bar. Use a peanut butter made from only peanuts. Check the labels because even those labeled 'natural' may have added oils. You could also use protein powder in place of the dry milk, which would really give it a protein boost!
