Granola Bites

Granola Bites are an easy, healthy snack, perfect for all ages. These are great to have on hand, especially if you just need a quick healthy snack.

Even though I used to make a version of these when I was a child, with just oats, honey, and peanut butter, I can not take credit for this more sophisticated version that incorporates coconut, ground flaxseed, and mini chocolate chips.  I found these on the blog, Smashed Peas and Carrots.  (I prefer to call them Granola Bites.)  I saw this recipe circulate around Pinterest many times, and I knew it I had to try it.  My sister shared some that she made, and then I had to make some for myself as well.

I love that you can try various add-ins, much like these other tasty granola bars, to suit your personal tastes.  Most of the ingredients are ones that I always have on-hand.

Granola Bites



  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter any nut-butter will work
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well incorporated. Chill in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes. Roll into small balls and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


*Feel free to mix in other things that you like such as dried fruit, small chopped nuts, etc. Keep in mind you might need to add a bit more honey or nut butter if you add several other ingredients to keep the mixture from becoming too dry.
