There are two things I never buy. One, is Granola. And the other, is Granola bars. I’d much prefer to make my own. Here’s my go-to healthy granola recipe. And here’s a new super healthy granola bite recipe that I just discovered!
They look and taste AMAZING.
And they just happen to be vegan. No bake. Full of healthy seeds and grains. And only sweetened with honey.
The key to these amazing bites is, in my opinion, the brown rice crisps and the chia seeds. It gives it a really nice crunchy, popping consistency.
It is super easy to make, takes very little time, delicieux, and ready to eat.
I found the easiest way to mix all the ingredients together was to just get in there and use my hands.
And then scoop with a tablespoon and form into little balls.
My 5 yr old daughter helped make these. This is a really good recipe to have your little one help out in the kitchen.
See all the yummy healthy goodness?
I usually 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.
I even packaged some up for my husband’s co-workers. As a fun little healthy work treat.
And – here’s Els enjoying her own too…
