Granola Bites

Here is a healthy snack that is quick to make and so yummy to eat.  I have also served these at parties and they are very popular.  If there is any left, guests want to take them home!

Granola Bites

2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup crisped rice cereal
1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips*

In a small saucepan, melt butter, peanut butter and honey over medium heat for about 1 to 2 minutes until creamy.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.  Stir in oats and cereal.  Add chocolate chips and mix.  Drop a tablespoon of the mixture into miniature baking cups.  Using a small melon ball scooper made this really easy to do.  Set cups on a baking sheet and put in refrigerator for 15 minutes or until set.  Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

Servings:  24 miniature bites

*Of course, using dark chocolate would make this even healthier. . . or you can use chopped almonds and/or dried fruit.
