i'm not big on store bought granola bars -- they're usually loaded with sugar and preservatives. that said, sometimes you need a quick snack on the run. well, to solve this dilemma, i came up with these yummy and satisfying pb snacks that beat a plain old granola bar any day of the week.
here's what you'll need for 10 snacks...
3/4 cup gluten-free granola or cereal 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds 1/2 cup peanut butter cinnamon & nutmeg to taste
1. crush the cereal and chop the pumpkin seeds.
2. in a bowl, mix together the granola, seeds and pb. season with some cinnamon and nutmeg.
3. once the "dough" comes together, break off heaping tablespoons and roll them into balls.
4. place on a cookie sheet and allow to cool in the fridge, then put into tupperware -- they stay good in the fridge for up to a week!
enjoy with a cup of chai tea : )
