After School Snack

The kids are coming home from school every day hungry!  They raid the pantry like food bandits.  So it's important to make sure that they are fed before the food frenzy sets in.  These easy no bake granola bites are the perfect treat after a hard day on the job.  They taste like balls of raw cookie dough but don't contain eggs, butter or flour.  So I guess you can call them healthy:)

Granola Bites
2 cups quick oats
1 cup granola-I like vanilla almond
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini M&M's
1 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.  Mix peanut butter, honey and vanilla and put in microwave to soften for 25 seconds.  Add to the dry ingredients, form into balls and place on parchment paper.  Put in refrigerator for 15minutes to cool. Store in airtight container and serve as a healthy and yummy after school snack.
