Almond Butter Granola Bites

Ok so I’ve been trying to step up on my blogging, and make this blog a more ‘full time’ thing….

I had this idea that I would post every Monday/Wednesday/Friday. And Friday’s would be a video!

So today is Monday. And I posted a video.

So far so good.

Today’s video is a favorite quick and easy snack that your littles can help you make! A lot of times during snack time it’s easy to scarf down a bucket of Pirate Booty, but to me they are just empty calories. (And purely delicious ones.) I hate to admit it but it doesn’t keep you or your littles full until the next meal.

I’ve made date/nut balls before, and honestly these are one of our favorite grab and go snacks to eat around the house. Whether we are running out the door, or I need a little something to hold them over before dinner!

Almond Butter Granola Bites
 
Ingredients
  • ¾ c.- 1c. dates (pitted & dried)
  • ¼ c. almonds
  • ¼ c. oats
  • ¼ c. honey
  • ⅓ c. almond butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Blend the dates and almonds in a food processor until fine crumbs. (This will take a few minutes.)
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients until the mixture comes together, and sticks together. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more liquid such as nut butter or honey.
  3. Roll into mini balls, press into a mold, or place in a pan fitted with parchment paper.
  4. Place in the fridge or freezer to let harden.
  5. Store in the fridge in a closed container.

 

But don’t worry. I won’t judge if you serve your kids pirate booty…Or you eat it yourself. It’s basically like eating air right?
