Wholesome, easy granola bites take just 5 minutes to prepare!
- 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
- Combine oats and next 4 ingredients (through chocolate chips) in a bowl and mix well.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- Feel free to sub in your favorite nut and dried fruits or to use almond butter in place of the peanut butter.
