Meanwhile my absolute favorite food blogger weelicious has her first cookbook coming out 2mrw!! The excitement is literally through the roof! This is a must for families!! Especially mine lol. This is one of my favorite recipes of hers...Chewy granola balls! Perfect to pop in your mouth for a healthy Lil pick me up. Coolest part is like most of her recipes you can adapt them to what you have on hand or whatever your feeling that day. Sometimes I like to add chocolate chips and dried cherries or butterscotch chips and dried apricots for a sweet treat you can feel good about giving your little ones : ) hope you enjoy these as much as we do ! I plan to enjoy a few while I dive into the cookbook!!!
also linked up for another awesome weekend potluck!
1/2 cup any nut butter you prefer ( the organic or natural ones work the best here)
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1 cup rice crispys
1 1/2 cups granola
1/4 cup dried fruit chopped
Mix the nut butter and syrup in a small saucepan over low to medium heat and warm for 2 minutes or until it smooth and together..
Then put the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix..
Then you pour the warm nut butter mixture into the bowl with the granola mixture and stir it all together..
And now you roll about a tablespoon into a ball.. Enjoy!
(This isn't necessary but I like to freeze the balls on a plate for an hour n then store them in the fridge we like to eat them cold. =))
