No-Bake Granola Bites

As much as I love the granola bars that I make….eating them every single day for my mid-morning snack gets kinda old! I found a recipe for these little gems, and tweaked it just a bit until I got something that I liked! You can easily switch out the “extras” with what you have on-hand, or try any combination of extras to keep it fresh! With the peanut butter, oats and nuts, you get a nice little energy burst…and the chocolate chips and honey gives it just enough sweetness to satisfy those  sweet tooth cravings! These freeze well, so you can just take a couple out in the morning and enjoy them later in the day! They are also super easy to make…..just stick in all in your kitchen-aid mixer and ball em up! No need to even turn on the oven! So have fun with these…. you pretty much can’t go wrong! Enjoy! 🙂

No-Bake Granola Bites (Printable Version)

1 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup honey

2/3 cup coconut flakes

1/3 cup diced walnuts

1/2 cup ground oats

1/2 cup Ghiradelli chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything above in a Kitchen-aid mixer until thoroughly incorporated.  Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.  Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy!  Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week or freeze.

    Those sound great! My kids would love them as a dessert. I never heard of no-bake ‘cookies’ until recently, but what a good idea–so quick!
