Heavenly granola . . . balls?



I made some no-bake granola bars last night by seriously tweaking this recipe from Bitten. Oh my heavens. Oh lordy, they are magnificent. I'm going to tell you what I did so you can run to your cupboard and make these pronto.



Oh, and instead of "pressing them into a 9 inch pan and cutting them" I took the short cut and used cupcake tins. Hence the balliness of them.



Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups granola
  • 1 cup mixture of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, slivered almonds, dried cranberries, roasted salted soynuts
  • 1/2 tspn cinnamon
Method
  • 1. Put the first five ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil (don't let it go too long or it will burn). Put the granola etc. in a large bowl and pour the sugar mixture over the top while mixing; stir until the granola is well coated.
  • 2. Press into cupcake tins and let cool in the fridge. Cover each one with plastic wrap and try your hardest to fend off friends, relatives and coworkers.

Those look really good--I might have to make them for my mid-morning work snack!

Did that yield the 18 I see in the fridge pic, or more?

Yup, that recipe made me a dozen and a half amazing granola balls.
