Some people don't like working in the kitchen at night because there's no natural light but I don't really tell a difference in my photos taken in the day vs. night since they aren't that great at either time of day. Unless I want to take a picture outside of a piece of quiche or some other dinner deal that won't last overnight, I'm fine with it. Also, some don't like to eat late at night but I am so productive at night so if I ever eat when it's dark out I usually stay up even later cleaning or doing something that needs to be completed (the night does wonders for dirty rooms and unfinished assignments; there's usually no noise around and you can focus on the task at hand and get so much stuff accomplished).
Make them tonight!
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Granola Balls
makes about 20 pieces
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup raisins
Place 20 mini cupcake wrappers on a rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.
Combine the agave nectar, peanut butter, and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the ingredients are melted, well-combined and smooth, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in the rice cereal, oats and raisins.
Drop heaping tablespoons of the mixture into the mini paper cupcakes wrappers. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container and enjoy within 1 week.
