These Skinny Peanut Butter Granola Bites are a healthy snack to munch on when you are trying to cut out a little extra sugar from your diet.
Yes, you read that right.
I have totally and completely jumped on the skinny bandwagon. (But don’t worry…I have a few other recipes that I will have to jump off the wagon so I can share with you soon!)
It is the beginning of the year after all, and everyone is doing their best to stick to those healthy eating goals. I don’t want to be the one to make you stumble, plus I am doing my best to cut some of the excess sugar out of my diet too. When I have brownies and cookies in my kitchen, my sweet tooth is stronger than my will power.
So, I made a sweet little snack that is lower in calories and higher in fiber and protein to pacify my sweet tooth with.
I took one of my no-bake granola bar recipes and removed the sugar and added some peanut butter. The honey is all you need to sweet these bites with. Basically the old recipe looks nothing like the new, and these are way softer. I’m a fan of soft snacks.
Now I did add some mini chocolate chips because this is me we are talking about. Plus, chocolate is an anti-oxidant right? Totally still healthy 🙂
No-bake, healthy, and soft granola are just a few of the things that I adore about these granola bites.
Oh, and the sprinkles. Just because we are eating healthy doesn’t mean we have to cut out the sprinkles. They add a little bit of fun and flair without adding too many extra calories. Feel free to leave them out if you have an issue with cutesy sprinkle goodies. My hubby told me I could make these again, but he prefers the non-sprinkle version. Boring if you ask me, but whatevs. I’m just excited to have a “sweet” treat that he is asking for seconds on. Score another point for the baking blog!
Now excuse me while I go polish off the last few skinny bites waiting for me in the kitchen. Wish me luck that I can resist the brownies that are sitting beside them!
