A Healthy Snack

I saw this recipe featured on one of my favorite blogs - Two Peas and Their Pod. They did a post on "50 Healthy Recipes to kick off 2012" and this one jumped out at me. I am always looking for a good healthy snack and this one sounded like something we would love. They are small & delicious snacks!

In a small/medium saucepan over medium heat combine honey, peanut butter, and butter. Stir until melted and smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in cereal, oats, and dried cranberries. let the mixture cool for about two minutes and stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop mixture by the tablespoon into mini cupcake liners. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes.

Peanut Butter Granola Balls:
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup Natural Peanut Butter
2 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Husband request: Next time double the chocolate chips and leave out the cranberries. But the cranberries haven't stopped him from eating these little goodies right up!
