Nutty “granola” Bites

One of my favorite pre-paleo snacks was granola. I’ve tried several paleo versions of granola, but they’re always really crumbly and hard to transport. So, here is a yummy, portable granola-y treat.

I’ve made these with all different combinations of nuts and seeds, so feel free to use what you like!

1/2 c pumpkin seeds
3/4 c sunflower seeds (raw)
1 1/2 c coconut flakes – I use these big flakes and they make it so yummy!
1 c sliced almonds
1 1/2 c pecans, roughly chopped
1 c almond meal (I like meal better then flour here)
1/2 c melted coconut oil
1/8 – 1/4 c honey
1/8 c maple syrup
1 T vanilla
cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 325.

In large bowl, mix all dry ingredients

In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients.

Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix really well – making sure all the dry get coated.

Grease mini muffin tins with a little bit of coconut oil. Fill tins with the granola mix.

Bake for 10 minutes then check on them and rotate pan. Bake 5-10 more minutes until the tops are starting to brown. Let cool completely in pan. You’ll have to use a knife to help them out. I often bake them in a silicone muffin tin and the pop out very easily.

You can also just make this on a sheet pan with parchment paper. Just bake for about 20 minutes, stirring it half way through.

These make a great snack for dirty handed little ones…

Enjoy!
