No-Bake Chia Seed Granola Bites

I’m always looking for healthy snacks to feed my family. And lately I’m also looking for ways to sneak things like chia seeds into our meals. My kids absolutely love granola bars & I’ve been obsessed with making our own granola bars lately with all sorts of good stuff added in. This afternoon we made some Chia Seed Granola Bites that the kids absolutely loved. The best things about these – you can make them with all-organic ingredients, they’re sugar-free, they only take a few minutes to make & you can add whatever you want to make your own flavors & varieties! Oh… and they’re delicious an it’s an easy recipe the kids can help with (and snack as they go)! Here was our spin on them:

Ingredients:

1 cup oats

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup almond butter

3 tbsp chia seeds

add ins — a handful of mixed dried fruit & dried shredded coconut (feel free to add whatever you want! nuts, seeds, raisins… etc.)
  
Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl (depending on the amount of add-ins you add, you may want to add an extra spoonful of the almond butter to hold everything together).

Form into balls & place on a plate lined with parchment paper

Cool in refrigerator until set (approx. 30min)

That’s it! Easy! Fast! And you know exactly what your kids are eating! Oh… and did I mention they’re delicious?!
You can store them in the fridge for up to a week. They are perfect for school lunches too – and it’s a great recipe to have the kids help with! As a variation, you can also press the mix into a parchment paper-lined pan, cool & then slice into granola bars once set.

Enjoy!
