No Bake Butterscotch Pecan Granola Bites

It’s Labor Day weekend! That means traveling, family time, and snacking! For us, it means snacking while traveling to my family!  Since it was 100 degrees yesterday, I decided I probably shouldn’t turn my oven back on like I did for the caramel apple oatmeal bars to make snacks! I needed to find something that would fulfill the “snacky” food requirement that didn’t require baking.

I opted for a version of my no-bake Peanut Butter Mini Chip Granola Bites. I switched up the chocolate for butterscotch and added pecans and crisp rice cereal to give them some crunch, because we all know that good snacking food has a crunch to it! 🙂 The last time I made these my husband ate them up in one day, so I figured he wouldn’t mind if I made them again!

Have a great weekend! Enjoy your family, friends, and of course, good food! And, if you need something to snack on, give these a try!

No Bake Butterscotch Pecan Granola Bites
Yield: 2 dozen granola bites


  • 1 1/2 C quick oats
  • 1/2 C crisp rice cereal
  • 1/4 C oat bran
  • 1/4 C ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 C pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 C butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 C honey
  • *1/2 C no-stir natural creamy peanut butter
  1. In a large bowl, stir together oats, cereal, oat bran, flaxseed, salt, pecans, and butterscotch chips. Add in honey and peanut butter. Stir until well-combined.
  2. Refrigerate dough for at least 15 minutes to allow dough to stiffen. Form dough into 1-inch balls.
  3. Snack away! Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
*If your peanut butter is really thick, you may need to melt it slightly in the microwave to make it easier to stir into the dry ingredients.This recipe is linked with Crazy Sweet TuesdayHeavenly TreatsStrut Your Stuff Saturday, Sweet Treats and Swanky Stuff, Totally Tasty Tuesday, Tuesday Talent ShowWeekend Potluck.
