Granola Bites

I thought of this simple little recipe last summer. In a bowl, I used to have Greek yogurt on the bottom, then I’d add granola, almonds, cashews, and peanut butter – and that’s when I got the idea for Granola Bites. (1 GB=87 calories)

  1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Start off by getting a deep bowl to mix your ingredients into.
  3. Pour ½ cups of granola and ½ cups of dry oats
  4. On a plate, cut up almonds, cashews, and dried cranberries.
  5. Pour the cut up nuts and berries into the bowl with the dry mix.
  6. Gradually add in a total of 4 tbsp. of peanut butter.
  7. Mix it slowly, and stir it well. Make sure there’s no granola or oats there aren’t mixed in with the peanut butter. Caution – it will be very sticky, and you may have to use your fingers quite a bit, so have something to wipe them on so that the mix doesn’t constantly stick to your fingers, rather than stay in the bowl.
  8. Get a pan, and grease it with coconut oil.
  9. Roll the mix into 10 small ball shapes.
  10. Stick them in the oven for 10 minutes
  11. When they are done, let them cool down for 6 minutes
  12. Refrigerate them for 10 minutes
