I love making peanut butter bites in any flavor. I usually keep it simple for the kids, though I did want to try pumpkin with these. Because it is fall time in New England and #basicbitch. Maybe next time. These are great snacks filled with healthy fats to keep us all satisfied during the afternoon slump. Even just having one left me satisfied without feeling stuffed.
I’ve never put granola in my bites before but love the extra crunch they added! I will definitely be doing more of this in the future. You can really use any granola for these bites. I recently got Trader Joe’s new peanut butter protein granola and it definitely has a lot of crunch to them. The hemp seeds are super nutritious being rich in omega 3, omega 6, protein, vitamin e and many minerals. Besides putting them in these bites I also sprinkle them on yogurt, smoothies and oatmeal.
I don’t typically put all the ingredients in a blender but I decided to try it with these. I loved the texture I got from them by doing so. They were perfectly thick without being too sticky. I could barely keep my little Evan away from them!
