Chocolate Chip Granola BitesPrepared by: Susan Mills-Gray,

September 1, 2013

 

Yield

Makes 2 dozen

 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • cup puffed rice cereal
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ
  • cup mini semi-sweet chocolate or butterscotch chips
  • cup brown sugar
  • teaspoon salt
  • cup canola oil
  • cup honey
  • teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Directions

  1. Mix well all ingredients except for the chocolate chips together. Start with a spoon and then mix by hand to ensure everything is blended together really well

  2. If your mixture seems dry after mixing, add a little more coconut oil or honey. Add a little at a time until the mixture starts to come together. Stir in the chocolate or butterscotch chips.

  3. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the granola mixture and form the mound compactly. Add to a mini muffin pan that has been sprayed with nonstick baking spray.
  4. Press the granola into the molds of the muffin pan using your hand or the back of a spoon. Press mixture firmly, compacting it as well as you can. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 12-14 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let sit in the pan for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Store the granola bites in an airtight container.
