Great Snack Food

This was a hit in my house. I have three older grandchildren along with their parents that ate these up quick. The next time I make them they want me to dip them in chocolate. Oh well, what's a few more calories.

    Help! I can't stop eating these!! They are totally awesome. The kids love them and I can barely keep my hands off them. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for more chocolate flavor. I will definitely make these again!

    Yummy

    Tess Rogers from Herreid, SD

    I made these with my assisted living residents. We didn't have any granola so we added more oatmeal and they were still great. We made a double batch and there weren't many left. Very easy and great to make!

    So Easy

    KATHY GREEN from South Daytona, FL

    This is a real easy recipe that the kids can help make and start learning to cook together.

    Yummy

    Stephanie Baumgardner from MIMS, FL

    We love these!! I do however have a son allergic to dairy, so I use 1/2 a cup of honey and omit the milk and powdered sugar. A great recipe to play with different flavors of granola, we like bananna nut. I also use semi-sweet mini chips instead of regular sized. Very easy for kids to help make.

    No-Bake Peanutty Granola Bites

    Gaynel Klimek from Republic, OH

    These are just the absolute perfect snack for my truck-driving man. To lighten them up a little, I used reduced-fat crunchy peanut butter, skim milk and raisins instead of the chips. He really loves them and they also are great take along snacks for all our sporting events.

  •  Star(s)

    Good to make with kids.

    amy capps from Raymond, WA

    I made these with my daughter. She is three and loved making them. It is a great recipe for the kids to help out with. She loved them but I thought they were a little sweet for the grownups. fun to make though.

  •  Star(s)

    Great

    Felecia Juliet from MANTON, MI

    This is amazing! Very easy and I get so many compliments! I have always used milk chocolate chips and sometimes have had to use unusual cereals, whatever is in the cupboard when I want to make these. It always turns out great!

  •  Star(s)

    great peanutty taste

    Patty Sciarrino from Chesapeake, VA

    Very easy recipe. Kids loved it. Has a great peanutty taste. Will consider making it again.

  •  Star(s)

    Yum and healthier!

    Kimberly Kisner from SAN ANTONIO, TX

    A pretty healthy snack, and tasty. It's a good recipe to hide other healthy ingredients like wheat germ and ground flax seed.

    really good

    sarah turner from UKIAH, CA

    Try using a little marshmellow cream it helps keep the balls together. This was fast easy and very very good. I will try this alot more for get togethers or just for a quick snack

  •  Star(s)

    easy for the girls to make

    Mary Tomerlin from RIVERSIDE, CA

    Made these with giggly 5th graders. They loved pouring the ingredients in the bowl, sitr it up & shape. They ate them as quickly as they were made.

    YUMMY!

    Emily Erickson from POCATELLO, ID

    We love this recipe at our house and have made it several times. It is so very easy and oh so yummy! We like to substitute M&M minis (the milk chocolate ones). They make the cookies more colorful and even tastier (if you can imagine). Thanks for a great recipe Nestle!

    Yummy!!

    Amy Hajihashemi from WEST LINN, OR

    Great to make in warm weather. These are tasty, easy to make and include healthy ingredients. I used natural peanut butter so I added a bit more oatmeal. I popped the bowl in the fridge for 20 mins. before shaping into balls. Everyone loved them!!

    No-Bake Peanutty Granola Bites

    Jodi D. from

    These cookies taste good and very easy to make. I like to use mini chocolate chips in them. It works good to use a cookie dropper to make them into balls instead of your hands, and it's not nearly as messy.

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent no bake

    Michelle Casey from Saint Marys, PA

    These were a big hit at our house... the addition of the granola increases texture and flavor and you just know you are eating a healthier cookie! Nice switch from the classic chocolate no bake.

  •  Star(s)

    No Bake peanutty Granola Bites

    Pauline Johnsey from No. Stratford, NH

    Very good, and good for you. But they do not roll into a ball very well. They need something to make them stick together. I will make them again, I think I will try to slightly melt the chocolate, to try and help them stick together.

    EASY ENOUGH FOR MY KIDS

    Edna Hawke from ST THOMAS, ON

    This recipe was amaingly easy for my kids to make. We substituted the granola for honey bunches of oats cereal and it turned out really good. :-) The kids loved them.

  •  Star(s)

    Good and Filling

    SARAH HACKELTON from MACUNGIE, PA

    These granola bites are sooo yummy! Because of the granola and peanut butter they are filling which helps to keep from overindulging they are also better than other snacks I can serve so adults love them and kids don't notice!

  •  Star(s)

    great recipe for kids to make on their own

    cheryl walker from E LANSDOWNE, PA

    This was not only good but a great recipe for the kids to make on their own since using the stove was not neccessary.

    A tasty treat

    Evonne Robertson from Fraser, MI

    This is a fun recipe for the kids to make. We put them on a plate and cut them rather than the balls. It was easier for my children to eat. Then I put the squares between waxed paper, and into baggies for school snack.

    Good but couldn't roll into balls well

    Laurie Gordon from CIBOLO, TX

    They are excellent in flavor, I switched up the morsels and added butterscotch to half of the recipe and semi sweet morsels to the other half. The only problem I had was getting them to roll into balls. I had to use my cookie scoop to do it and even then they weren't perfect balls. Maybe it was humidity, but I will make them again.

    MMMM...good!

    Leslie Padget from Virginia Beach, VA

    This is an excellent recipe, easy to make, and even better taste! The only thing I would change I put in only choco chips [b/c i didn't have any pb chips] and i used less because there seemed to be quite a few after i dumped in about 3/4 of what the recipe called for. But it's all up to your taste...I gave these out to my friends and they all loved it!

    Good and Good for You

    Betty Busbee from Fort Myers, FL

    This is an easy recipe and is healthy. We love Granola, and I have bought these ready made, but this recipe is even better! My family likes them for breakfast, snacks or any time in between, and they are good for you too.

    NO-BAKE PEANUTTY GRANOLA BITES

    JERRI SPENCE from THOMASVILLE, NC

    This is a very good recipe for on the go activities,believe me.They might get a little out of shape once @ room temp. but in an air tight container it's fine. Another idea too, take some and do not roll it into balls just refrig. to let set, then use it as a sprinkle over ice cream or as a topping for a dessert.....

    My 10 year old daughter had fun making this recipe all by herself. They were so good that my son even asked her to make some more. Next time we'll make a double batch since they went so fast.

    Granola Bites

    Generally I am not a fan of no-bake cookies but something about the ingredients in this recipe attracted me. I made them and took them into the office and people loved them. A nice break from the usual treats!

    I make these No-Bake Peanutty Granola Bites for my husband and Grandson to take on their fishing trips. Sometimes I add 1/2 c chopped peanuts to the mix. They love them.

    GREAT

    D Goodheart from

    These were great...easy to make and very tasty. I used 4 chopped pecan granola bars (1/2cp). The bites taste like no bake cookies and would also be great dipped in chocolate like buckeyes. This recipe is a keeper!
