Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Granola Bites


New Year's resolutions, anyone? If it's eating healthy, SOPHIE TO THE RESCUE! Since we're going on vacation in a month, I've decided to all but cut out sugar from my diet, allowing myself to eat sweets only on the weekends. Of course, it'll take some getting used to, but I know it'll pay off in the long run. {pun intended.}


I know, I know, you probably think I'm crazy right now- please. I get called it all the time. What's one more? But my plan for the month is to still bake up a storm on the weekend {as usual.} and test out some healthy recipes throughout the week that will make good and nutritious snacks and breakfasts. That way, we get a good balance of HOLYCRAPMYTEETHAREGONNAFALLOUT and pre or post workout recipes. What do you guys think? 


As I was scrounging through the kitchen, trying to find something to satisfy my serious sweet tooth, I spotted a jar of granola that I made last week. Since it was gonna go dry soon, I figured I'd incorporate it into a skinny and delicious treat. ENTER peanut butter chocolate chunk granola bites. 

This recipe is a breeze to whip up with a list of only 5 ingredients, all of which you most likely have around the kitchen. These bites also will only take 10 minutes MAX. You're just a few minutes away from a chocolatey peanut buttery treat that's not only delicious, but also nutritious! 

Happy 2013, everyone!


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Granola Bites 

2 c. granola
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. honey
3/4 c. wholewheat flour
1/2 c. chocolate chunks

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the peanut butter until softened; about 15 seconds should be good. Add in the honey. Fold in the granola, flour, and chocolate chunks. Stir until combined. Roll the dough into balls. The recipe should make about 10 large ones or 15 small ones. Place in a plastic container and refrigerate until firm.
