No Bake Granola Bar Bites

No Bake Granola Bar Bites

Throughout the day I have at least two snacks. One between breakfast and lunch and another between lunch and dinner. For the afternoon snack I tend to gravitate towards something that has protein in it (i.e.: apple + almond butter, trail mix, etc) to fuel me through an after work workout and keep me full until dinner. These no bake granola bites are so easy to make and are a great little alternative to a granola bar.  Brian and I are always reaching for these and he even tosses a few in with his lunch each day as a sweet treat. You could easily mix the ingredients up to cater to your preferences. Mini reeses pieces, raisins, chopped nuts, etc!

    I’m such a snacker, too. In fact, a few of the girls at work are like, “Every time I see you, you’re eating.” I love that these are sweet but nutritional at the same time. Totally need to make these this weekend!

    These sound delish! I’ve had the ingredients on hand to make similar energy bites for an embarrassing amount of time and just haven’t done it. I need to make them this coming weekend!
