Chocolate-Peanut Butter Granola Bites

Are you a victim of the afternoon work slump? Symptoms might include re-reading the same email multiple times, misspelling common words like “everyday” or even mindless head-nodding during meetings. The struggle is real, people. And the answer is NOT another cup of coffee. 

Take a few minutes to whip up some no-bake bites with hearty, protein-packed granola mixed in and you’ll power through the work day like the pro you are. 

I love this recipe because you can easily shake things up and it still works, every time. Simply mix up 1/3 cup each of honey, peanut butter and brown sugar on the stovetop. Remove from the heat and add another 1/3 cup of chocolate chips and a bag your favorite granola – I like how the Nature Valley Oats ‘n Dark Chocolate amps up the peanut butter cup flavor – and then scoop into bite-size servings to cool.

It’s really that easy.
