I don’t know what to call this. A granola bar, protein bite, power ball, a healthy snack….it’s good and you can shape it pretty much anyway you want to; so I’m going with a Goodie. This goodie is jam packed with good-for-you goodness! These are no bake, easy to make and, best of all, your kiddos can help you make them!
This recipe uses nut butter; I made mine with almond butter. The consistency of nut butters varies from brand, quality and nut. Almond butter is a little more thick than peanut butter. Organic peanut butter is more thick than conventional peanut butter. Cashew butter is completely different all together. So put your big-kid pants on and play with the batter a little bit if the texture is not right. If you end up with batter that is too wet, add some more oats or flax seeds, you could even add wheat germ. If it’s too dry, add a little more applesauce or honey.
