Peanut Butter Oat Bites

I stumbled across this recipe the other day and thought it sounded like a great snack. Filled with simple ingredients and a little bit of chocolate, this crunchy, sweet, peanut buttery snack is sure to put a smile on your face. Kids will love finding this treat in their lunch boxes and adults will enjoy making {and eating} it time and time again. After my dad tried one he informed me that I should be making these again. Give them a try, and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Oat Bites
adapted from: myrecipes.com
Yield: 24-40, depending on the size you make


What You Need
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts or peanuts

What To Do
1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
2. Remove pan from heat and stir in peanut butter, powdered sugar, honey, and vanilla.
3. Stir in Rice Krispies and oats and allow mixture to cool. {By the time I added my cereal and oats, the mixture was pretty much cooled already.}

6. Store in refrigerator.
