I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for healthy snack ideas for the kids. This usually involves homemade goodies, which honestly, I don’t always have time to make. So I was delighted when I came across a simple yet delicious recipe for Granola Bites.
These little bites of goodness take no time at all to mix together. The longest part is baking them in the oven, but really, I can get a lot done while waiting 45 minutes for these to bake.
The Granola Bites do have peanut butter in them, so if your kids attend a nut-free school like mine do, save these for an after school snack. Or, these would even be perfect for a quick breakfast. There is 4 grams of protein in one Granola Bite, which helps keep your little ones full. Two of these bites with a bit of yogurt and some juice makes a complete breakfast.
I also love that these have no refined sugar. The recipe uses maple syrup as a natural sweetener.
My kids and husband devoured these in a matter of days. And since I usually have all of the necessary ingredients for these Bites on hand, it’s no problem whipping up another batch.
So if you’re looking for a healthy snack alternative for your kids, I highly recommend you try these!
