amanda's yummy granola bites

1tsp vanilla
1/2 C peanut butter (i used sunflower seed butter- surely any nut/seed butter would be fine)
1/4 C molasses
1/4 C dk brown sugar
1/2 C honey
1/2 C nuts (i used chopped cashews)
1/2 C almonds (grind to meal for smoother texture) (i used chopped pecans)
1/2 C dried cranberries (use any dried fruit)
2 C oats (using quick cook works a little better, texture wise...)
2 C toasted rice cereal
1/4 C wheat germ (i use a little wheat germ and some flax seeds) 
a little nutmeg & cinnamon


heat top five ingredients in a large saucepan until well mixed
mix dry ingredients in bowl and add to hot mixture (turn off heat)
stir until mixed
spoon into mini muffin tins and press down (butter the bottom of a small glass to press the granola down)
let stand an hour or so...
ready!!
