417 Power Bites

A healthier sweet treat with locally sourced ingredients.

Recipe makes 12 power bites.

Ingredients
1½ to 1¾ cups peanut butter 
Chocolate Granolove granola
½ cup East Wind natural peanut butter 
⅓ cup Honey Heaven honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Shredded coconut for coating (optional) 

To prepare
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using your fingers, crumble granola into small, workable chunks (be sure to break up any large clusters and loosen any nuts or raisins). Pour 1½ cups crumbled granola in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, stir the peanut butter and honey mixture until well combined. Pour the mixture over the crumbled granola, and mix to coat. If the mix still looks too sticky, add remaining ¼ cup of granola. Once completely mixed, add vanilla. Mix well. Using a teaspoon, scoop up a large spoon of the mixture, and roll into a ball. Roll ball into shredded coconut to coat, if desired. Continue until you use all of the mixture. Place rolled balls on cookie sheet. Refrigerate until firm, at least a few hours, preferably overnight. Enjoy!
