I’m a sucker for the manager’s special section of the grocery store. I can’t resist a deal and I get a certain thrill from sifting through the clearance items looking for treasure. Last summer, a few bags of Nature Valley’s Almond Butter Granola Bites landed in that corner of the store. I scooped up a few and we gobbled them up like they were candy (and the nutrition label indicated they weren’t too far off from actual candy). As is often happens, I thought, “I bet I could make my own.” Breaking down the recipe was incredibly simple and now you can make your own too. These bites are a great snack to fend off sugar cravings or boost your energy so you can actually make dinner instead of getting takeout. Not that I’m speaking from experience . . . On the outside, they look like our nutballs (which I ate way too many of over Christmas), but they’re much healthier and still taste amazing. I like to use homemade granola, but you can also use store bought. Enjoy!
