Peanut Butter Granola Balls

This recipe has become a family favorite at our house. It can be made with chocolate chips or any dried fruit, my favorite is dried cranberries because they are not too sweet. The recipe is from Everyday Food magazine.

Peanut Butter Granola Balls
Makes 24

1/3 cup honey (or agave nectar)

1/4 cup natural peanut butter

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup crisp rice cereal (we've even used cheerios successfully)

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/4 cup dried fruit

In a small saucepan over medium, heat honey, peanut butter, and butter. Stir until loosened and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cereal, oats, and dried fruit.

Drop mixture by the tablespoon into mini paper cupcake or candy liners. Place on a rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. To store, refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 week.
