:: granola bites ::

or gorilla bites
...as my kids named them

2/3 C. almonds
2/3 C. peanuts
2/3 C. raw oats
1/3 C. raw honey
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. real salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 C. chopped cranberries {optional}
1/3 C. dark chocolate {optional}

toast the nuts in the oven until lightly browned
chop oats and nuts in a food processer
mix everything together until thoroughly combined
if you are adding the chocolate, it will melt from the warm nuts
...which to me makes them all that much better
especially when you are only adding 1/3 C. it makes the chocolate spread further. {grin}

add coconut oil to your hands
take a scoop into your palm and roll into a ball
let them cool for 20 minutes {if you can} and then enjoy!

  1. Hi Brittany! I have been reading your blog since before the twins were born.:) we are from ky and are currently in ND for work :( I was secretly hoping that somehow I would get to meet you. :) I have no idea how close we are. I know you are a busy lady and I don't expect you to go out of your way. Just thought that perhaps we are really close by you and yours don't know it.:) email me at salomaschrock@gmail.com


Thank you for blessing me with your words!
