Perfect little bites of energy homemade instead of store-bought bars or bites! Perfect for your kids too!

energy bites 4

I used:

1/3 c coconut flakes

1/3 c mini choc chips

1/4 c wheat germ

1/4 c flaxseed meal

1 c old fashioned oats

1/4 c agave

1/2 c natural peanut butter 

2 tsp cinnamon

You can use the same or sub or add in your favorites! Nuts, raisins, etc.

Mix together all ingredients in bowl and use your hands if you have to. Messy!

Cover and place bowl in fridge for 1/2 hour.

Remove from fridge and roll into 1 inch balls or flatten the mixture into a large bar on wax paper and place back in fridge.

Should make around 20 to 22 bites or 10 to  12 bites and 1 bar to be cut into smaller bites as needed.

I did both methods as you can see.

It was messy! I even put coconut oil on my hands to help form them but the entire mix did not fully cooperate >>>hence the bar! Patience lost 🙂

 

They are delicious!!

I hope you and your family enjoy them!

Coconut, currants and chocolate granola

choc coconut and currant granola

Ingredients:

6 cups old-fashioned oats

2 cup combined chopped and silvered plain almonds

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 cup cinnamon

Combine above ingredients and bake into 3 batches on cookie sheet at 350 for 20 min-giving it a shake halfway through

When you take pan out of the oven drizzle 1 tbsp of pure honey over baked mixture and let cool.

Let cool for 10 min then add 1/3 c dried black currants, 1 heaping tbsp of the coconut flakes and 1/4 c mini choc chips to each “batch”.

Store in tight container in fridge. 1 serving is 1/4 cup which makes about 40 servings. My rule with granola making-always share with your friends and family-spread the love!!

Some facts about the black currant:
*More than 5 times the vitamin C of oranges
*As high as banana in potassium
*More calcium than any fruit
*Contain more phosphorus and potassium than any other fruit
*Second only to elderberry in iron and protein

Enjoy with milk, plain by the handful or with Greek Yogurt!! Pairs really well with Almond Breeze Coconut Almond unsweeteded almond milk! (45 calories per cup!!)
