Preparation: 10 minutes
Yields: 20-25 bites

Serving Size: 1 ball

 

Ingredients  
1 cup crispy puffed rice cereal 1/2 cup chopped unsalted pretzels
1/2 cup peanut butter 1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)

 
Directions
Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. (This step makes the mixture easier to shape.)
Remove and shape into small 1-inch balls, or press into the bottom of a parchment-lined baking pan to make granola bars.
Enjoy immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
**It is not essential that these be refrigerated, but it helps the balls to keep their shape.
