Are you looking for recipes for Christmas goodies? I have several in my new Sports Nutrition Guidebook.

No Bake Peanut Butter Bites   

Here’s a tasty treat that fits nicely into an afternoon snack. Perfect for hungry kids coming home from school, or hungry athletes after a workout. Bet you can’t eat just one…

½ cup chunky peanut butter

1/3 cup powdered sugar

¼ teaspoon vanilla

¼ cup granola cereal

Optional: ¼ cup mini chocolate chips

1. In a medium bowl, using a spoon, combine the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mix well.

2. Stir in the granola (and chocolate chips).
