Simple No-Bake Granola Bar Bites

No-Bake Granola Bites
This is a non-recipe recipe. This means that you can sub out ingredient for ingredient as you have preferences, allergies, and stock piles. Love flax seeds? Throw ’em in. Can’t have peanut butter? Use the nut butter you like. Prefer maple syrup? Use it instead of honey. Running low on raisins? Oh well. Don’t like chocolate chips?

Wait. Who doesn’t like chocolate chips??

Here’s how this non-recipe works:

  1. Plop 1/2 cup peanut butter (or whatever butter) and 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup) into a bowl. I really do mean plop. Just eye-ball it. An exact 1/2 cup of peanut butter is not necessary here.
  2. Stir in 1 1/3 cups total of whatever dry ingredients you want. Oats, flax, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, raisins, chocolate chips, anything else you like.
  3. Scoop the mixture into balls and enjoy.
  4. Store them in the refrigerator.

    Thank you; I love this kind of recipe, where I can use bits up… Just whipped up a batch, with the last of a bag of granola, a handful of leftover pumpkin seeds, etc. etc. Sticky and delicious now; am hoping it firms up enough to easily drop into lunches! (BTW, just FYI, the post says 1 1/2 cups dry ingredients in one place, 1 1/3 in another… not that I imagine it matters; I bet either would work!)

    Ooh, thank you! I fixed it. That was me changing my mind about what would really be best overall, but you’re right, it doesn’t matter very much. :)

    You can also add a plop of pumpkin puree in with the peanut butter and honey. You won’t really notice a difference in the taste but it adds even more nutrition!
