Bitsy's Brainfood Cereal Snack Bites

 

As promised, here is the first of two more recipes that I came up with using Bitsy’s Brainfood cereals.

This one is really easy, really fast, and requires no baking!

These little bites are the perfect combination of sweet and salty but one of their best qualities is how they stay crunchy even after a few days. Which makes for a really satisfying little snack.

My husband took these to work to share with his team and he said they disappeared immediately so I’d say they were a hit!

The main flavor present in these snack bites is peanut butter so if you’re a fan of the PB and chocolate combo, feel free to toss in a few chocolate chips.

 

Carrot Raisin Crunch Cereal Snack Bites

Made with Bitsy’s Carrot Raisin Crunch Cereal

 

Ingredients

1/3 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup honey

1 1/2 cup Bitsy’s Carrot Raisin Crunch cereal

1/4 cup wheat germ

1/4 cup flax seeds

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp vanilla

6 medjool dates – chopped into small pieces

sea salt

 

Directions

Add the peanut butter and honey to a small sauce pan set over low heat. Stir until combined and remove from heat.

Add the cereal to a blender or food processor and pulse a few times just to break it up a bit into small pieces.

Add the rest of the ingredients along with a pinch of sea salt and pulse until the mixture comes together. You can also do this by hand.

Allow the mixture to cool and form it into balls. Just move it back and forth between each hand, squeezing as you go.

I found that occasionally wetting my hand slightly with cold water helped this process because flax seeds stick to everything.

The dates I used were huge so If you find that your snack bites just aren’t sticking together, chop up another couple of dates and toss them in to the mixture.

Store the snack bites at room temp in an air-tight container.

I can’t say how long these will last because mine were gone within a couple of days but I’d venture to guess that they should last a week.
