Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into a bowl. Mix well until everything is evenly coated in the peanut butter and honey. (Note: to make the mixing process easier, microwave the peanut butter and honey for 20 seconds before adding).
  1.  Refrigerate 20-25 minutes, just enough for the “dough” like mixture to settle. This makes it easier to form scoops without it being too sticky.
  1. Spray a spoon or ice cream scooper with cooking spray. Roll each scoop into a ball. Place them in a container or on a tray and refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.

For a sweeter granola bite add ¼ cup of mini chocolate chips and ¼ cup of shredded coconut!
