I came across this recipe and thought it looked pretty tasty. After running the ingredient list past my friend and getting a thumbs-up, I went for it!
These little beauties have a delightful chewy texture, with a nice crunch from dark chocolate chips. They are endlessly adaptable, so feel free to play around with the ingredients. And the best part? No preservatives or added oils!
Granola Bar Bites (original recipe here)
makes 20-25 1" bites
1 c old fashioned oats
1 c toasted coconut flakes
1/2 c chocolate chips (try nuts, dried fruit, and/or seeds)
1/2 c peanut butter (or any nut butter)
1/2 c ground flaxseed (or wheat germ)
1/3 c honey (don't substitute agave, it's too thin)
1 tsp vanilla
|I didn't use flaxseed or wheat germ, and mine were still delicious!|
Roll into 1" balls.
|Until next time!|
