Granola has a big presence in my life. I love granola bars, granola bowls, granola-topped frozen yogurt, you name it! These chocolate and almond granola bites are just one more way I can enjoy one of my favorite “anytime” foods. I usually save these teensy indulgences for an after-lunch snack, but I also use them for grab-and-go breakfasts with a cup of cofee. I love sweets that I don’t have to feel guilty about.
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Rice Cereal
1/2 Cup honey
1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/4 Cup Canola Oil (I used Pam Spray because I ran out of canola oil! Whoops)
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds
Another easy recipe! Mix all the ingredients in the bowl, and do not hesitate to add more honey or oil as you see fit. The mixture should be very sticky so the granola bites can keep their shape.
When all mixed together, use a tablespoon scoop to fill 20 cupcake cups and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. When they are done, the tops will be a crispy golden brown. Let them cool for 2-3 hours before serving.
You won’t be able to stop making these! They’re delicious, crunchy, chocolatey snacks that won’t weigh you down.
Lots of Love,
Can’t wait to celebrate FNO tonight!read more
