Healthy Granola Bites Liz’s Way

I value Jeff’s and my health, so when I can mix up a go to snack that satisfies our  sudden snack attacks I am excited. These little granola bites go well on the trail when we are exercising or Geo Caching.  There is something very addicting about these so we limit ourselves to two a day, otherwise you won’t want to stop snacking, even though they are very healthy.

Ingredients

2 Cups  Old Fashioned Oatmeal

1 Cup Almond Butter

1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans, Almonds or Walnuts your preference

1/4 Cup Unsweetened Flaked Coconut

1/2 Cup Chopped Cocoa Chips or mini chocolate chips

1/3 Cup Honey

1 Teaspoon cinnamon

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl adding the honey last, stir to combine, I use my hand mixer. When mixed well, I use a small cookie scoop and roll into 1 inch balls. Store in a airtight container in fridge or freezer. I tried to hide these in the freezer, didn’t work, he found them, oh well its a complement how yummy healthy can be.. if stored in the refrigerator they should last a week.

Note: Also yummy if you roll the bites in Cocoa Powder

 

Until Next Time Healthy To You From Just Around The Bend  ♥

This recipe actually came from a post I saved from when I was at Denair Grammar School many years ago. I changed a few things,  as back then it called for peanut butter and quick cooking oatmeal, both work well, if you prefer.
