cinnamon granola balls

as promised, the recipe for cinnamon granola balls! with no refined sugars, and loads of cinnamon to boost insulin sensitivity & stimulate metabolism, these are a fabulous choice for not only my little flock of toddlers but also me! *warning: these are addictive*

cinnamon granola balls
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 honey
1 cup 5-grain cereal {or old fashioned oats}
1/4 cup slivered almonds, crushed
1/4 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp cinnamon

preheat the oven to 350 degrees. in a small saucepan, combine the peanut butter & honey. slowly heat over low until the peanut butter & honey are somewhat melty.

meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the cereal, almonds, coconut, and cranberries. use a rubber spatula to spoon all of the peanut butter mixture on top of the dry mixture. use your hands to combine the dry & wet ingredients. this is very sticky! continue to mix until it is well combined and the mixture is sticking together.

in a small bowl, combine the melted butter & cinnamon. roll mixture into small balls, dip them into the butter & cinnamon mixture & place of greased cookie sheet.

bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven. makes 20 balls.
