Peanut Butter Granola Bites

Peanut Butter Granola Bites

You are going to love these peanut butter granola bites! They are perfect for this time of year – healthy and full of good-for-you things, but still a little sweet and treat-like to help you get through the transition period after the holidays. :) I am not the type of person that can give up sweets altogether, and so these healthy little granola bites are perfect! I don’t feel guilty eating one as a dessert or snack, and I feel good about myself for choosing something healthier than a cookie. Plus they are delicious, which is a nice added bonus. ┬áNeedless to say, I love these and I hope you do too :)

p.s. I’ve been somewhat hoarding these from Mike. I give him leftover oreo balls in his lunch and keep these for myself ;)

    I have made something like this before and it was pretty good (it came out a little funny because I accidentally put in almond extract instead of vanilla…which are not the same, in case you didn’t know!). Will have to try these :) Do you think they would be too sticky if you didn’t roll them in the almonds?
