I am so excited to be participating in the very first Surprise Recipe Swap . When Jutta from Hungry Little Girl told me what she was planning I rushed over to sign up.
Each month participants are assigned a blog. They then choose a recipe to make and write about in a blog post. This month I was assigned Couponing & Cooking. Have you been to Kaylee’s blog? If not be sure to check it out. She shares her money saving strategies, coupons and some really great recipes.
I had a hard time choosing just one recipe; I was torn between Caramel Apple Cheesecake Dessert Dip, Brown Butter Snickerdoodles & Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bites. Ultimately, I choose the Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bites because it was a quick and easy treat and I had all of the ingredients on hand.
While gathering the ingredients from the pantry, I stumbled upon an open bag of coconut and decided these granola bites would be that much better with a little bit of coconut thrown in the mix.
If you are looking for a way to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can not go wrong with these granola bites. Is it possible to go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter? A couple of quick tips:
- Before starting, prepare a mini cupcake pan with liners
- Spoon granola mixture into liners, using a cookie scoop
- To decrease cooling time, place in freezer for 20-30 minutes
I bet you can’t eat just one!
