Pin these no bake chocolate peanut butter granola bar bites for later!
Welcome to the new year! I always like to start the year off a little healthier, not that I don’t want to eat better all year long but there’s always that push at the beginning of the year for a fresh start.
**These chocolate peanut butter energy balls were made in partnership with Mom’s Best Cereal. All opinions are my own.
But if you know me you know I’m obsessed with sweets, and as much as I try I can’t seem to fully kick them from my diet, so instead I turn to some healthier treats to curb my sweet tooth. In comes these no bake chocolate peanut butter granola bar bites. Granola bar bites are one of my favorite healthier snacks. They’re much better for you than a stack of cookies or other sweets.
These bars are made with only a few pantry ingredients, and with just a couple steps so they are perfect for a healthier snack or treat! All you need to make these yummy bites are oats, Post® Mom’s Best® Crispy Cocoa Rice cereal (though in a pinch regular rice cereal works great too!), peanut butter, honey, and cocoa powder.
Combine it all in a large bowl and roll them up into little bite sized balls, and voila you’ve got little tasty snacks of goodness.
Crunchy, chocolatey, peanut butter goodness in a little snackable bite!

These were extremely delicious. I just used regular Rice Krispies. Question. Do you just use your hands to roll them in balls? It seemed way to sticky so I just put them in an 8×8 an cut them like Rice Krispie squares
I use my hands to roll them. Sometimes I put the mixture in the fridge for like 30 minutes before rolling them if it is too sticky. I also spray my hands with nonstick spray or wash them often with cold water without drying all the way, and those seem to keep the mixture from sticking as badly.
What a great idea adding the crispy cocoa rice with the oatmeal to make these bites. I am definitely saving your recipe. I’m obsessed with sweets like you said you are, and this sounds like it’ll satisfy my cravings.
