No Bake Granola Bites

These days it is becoming so much easier to reach for snacks that are of a less healthy option. A busy schedule combined with easy access to processed foods through vending machines, coffee shops, and convenience shops certainly does not help.

In actuality though having access to healthier snacks can be even easier. All is needed are a few ingredients and a little time spent in the kitchen. Since this is a no bake recipe it can even be prepared sitting in the living room while watching television. 


These granola bites are healthy and will give that boost of mid morning or afternoon energy you need.

Yield: 20 balls

Ingredients:

1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup peanuts
1/4 cup chocolate pieces
1/4 cup honey

Method:

1. In a large bowl add all ingredients and stir until mixed well.

2. Cover and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

3. Once chilled roll into balls of your desired size. The ones pictured here were done in one inch diameter. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one week.



Do you have any healthy snacks that you prepare ahead of time?

  5. Hi! I would love to make this for my hubby for a good yummy protein boost. Is the coconut you used here the dry dessicated ones or freshly grated?

    1. Hi Eileen! It is the dry dessicated coconut. I am sure you could also use the freshly grated as well. This recipe is one where ingredients can be easily altered.

  14. These granola bites will certainly deliver a nice boost of power. One of my quick snacks is just a fruit salad that I prepare ahead of time, and then put in plastic 1-cup containers in the fridge.
