The Perfect Little Granola Bites

The Perfect Little Granola Bites

There are two things I never buy. One, is Granola. And the other, is Granola bars. I’d much prefer to make my own. So first, here’s my go-to healthy granola recipe. And next, here’s a new super healthy little granola bites recipe that I just discovered!

They look and taste AMAZING.

They also just happen to be vegan. No bake. Full of healthy seeds and grains. And only sweetened with honey.

The key to these amazing granola bites is, in my opinion, the brown rice crisps and the chia seeds. Because it gives it a really nice crunchy, popping consistency.

My 5 yr old daughter helped make these. This is a really good recipe to have your little one help out in the kitchen.

Usually, I just use half chia seeds and half golden flax seeds, but for this batch I used this ancient grain and seed medley from Tj’s.

Both ways are equally as good.

I have my mother-in-law and brother-in-law visiting, so you can imagine these went pretty fast in our house. I also like the idea of easy, healthy, grab n’ go. Whether it be in the morning, midday or after school.
