Morena Escardo Last month I worked at a summer camp teaching Spanish. Every morning, the children ate a quick snack at 11 am, which would sustain them until lunch at noon. Although I do not usually snack a lot between breakfast and lunch, since I always eat a nutritious and filling breakfast, seeing them eat them at this time awoke my appetite. As usual, I started to imagine quick and practical snacks that I could bring with me from home. One of my favorite snacks in the evenings is to eat peanut butter or almond butter with dark chocolate, and a little honey or dates to add a sweet touch. That's how these chocolate-dipped granola balls with honey and peanut butter were created. MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • These balls should remain refrigerated, especially over the summer. If you take them with you to work as a snack, refrigerate them as soon as you arrive.
  • Place the balls in individual ramekins and place them next to each other instead of on top of each other to prevent them from sticking or falling apart.
