Granola Bites

Does anyone else think it is so hard to find easy, healthy, clean, gluten free snacks?  Yes, I realize that fruit and vegetables fit the bill, but sometimes I want something with some more oomph to it.  And, yes, I want chocolate often.  I have seen so many variations of snack balls both cooked and raw all over my favorite cookbook, Pinterest, but many of them had coconut or other ingredients I wasn't feeling.  These little gems are my favorite parts of a couple recipes mixed together.

{  Ingredients  }
1 cup quick cooking organic oats
1/2 cup ground flax or flax meal
4 heaping tablespoons natural nut butter (or more to taste)
4 tablespoons honey or agave (or more to taste)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

{  Directions  }
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl
- Mix into balls of your size choosing
- Set on a plate and let refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
- Eat and enjoy!

The best part is that these are something our entire family will eat!  I can make a batch and have them for a few days!  There are lots of these recipes on Pinterest and other blogs so I highly recommend finding which one fits your taste buds best and experimenting!


  1. These look so good! They kind of remind me of these no-bake cookies my mom and I used to make around Christmas with oats and cocoa powder!

  2. These look amazing! I made something similar a few months ago and they make a great on-the-go breakfast. Love!

  3. I definitely want to make a batch of these for my work family. They seem simple and healthy!

  4. Ugh whenever I make these kind of things I convince myself of how healthy they are so I honestly eat them all in one day. Terrible. But they are SO good!!
