Wholesome, easy granola bites take just 5 minutes to prepare!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups oats (I used old fashioned)
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey

Instructions

  1. Combine oats and next 4 ingredients (through chocolate chips) in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Combine peanut butter and honey in a separate bowl and stir until smooth. (If your PB is hard or cold, you can do this in a small saucepan over medium low heat. It just takes a minute to warm up the peanut butter and get the mixture smooth.) Pour the peanut butter-honey mixture over the granola mix and stir until everything is well coated.
  3. Wet your hands with water and roll into balls - I did mine about 1-inch wide (a little bigger than a golf ball). To make them easier to roll, you can put the mixture in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to let it firm up a bit. If I'm making these ahead, I'll do that step. If I'm making them with M, we roll and eat immediately.
  4. Store in the fridge in an air-tight container. You can use wax paper between the layers to keep the balls from sticking to each other. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  1. Feel free to sub in your favorite nut and dried fruits or to use almond butter in place of the peanut butter.
