Granola Bites

Granola Bites

 

2 cups rolled oats, toasted

½ c unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted

½ c natural (no added oils, salt, sugar, things you can’t pronounce, etc.) peanut butter

½ c honey

1/8 c brown sugar (I reduced this from the recipe’s original ¼ cup)

½ c trail mix (really just a combination of toasted nuts and dried fruits.  I used toasted walnut pieces, sliced almonds, raisins and cranberries)

3 T milled flax seeds or flax seed meal (available at Trader Joes)

 

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine peanut butter, honey and brown sugar in saucepan over medium heat.  Cook until brown sugar is completely dissolved, stirring continuously to prevent from scorching.

Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients.  Stir to combine.  Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.

Working with damp hands, shape into 1 in balls and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
