You basically just combine your favorite ingredients from a granola bar and voila, granola bar bites.

Okay, so its not QUITE that easy, but it is easy. You just have to make sure you have the right ratio of wet and dry ingredients so that these balls will roll up nicely into balls and hold their shape once rolled.

I decided to use coconut flakes, chocolate chips and raisins as my add ins, and these bites tasted delicious! But you could add white chocolate chips, nuts, dried cherries, etc.

  1. These look yummy!
    My daughter wanted to make some like this but was using ground flax seed also. I was at work when she decided to do this so she called to ask if we had any flax. I explained when it was in the pantry (why am I the only one who can find things – it is organized i promise) and went on with my day. A few hours later I got a call from my daughter saying she thinks there was something wrong with the flax seed because the snack balls had a very strong spice flavor. After asking her some questions (because this made no sense) I realized she had used mustard seed instead, and 1/2 a cup at that! I was laughing so hard the receptionist came to me office to make sure I was alright! My daughter felt to terrible and felt like she had just wasted all those ingredients. I reassured her that this is the way we learn sometimes and that she should just trash it all and start over. We laugh about this every time the word mustard is used.

    1. Oh my goodness, Laura! That is hilarious! I am glad we can all learn from our own cooking mistakes and that’s how we get better. I’m sure those mustard granola bites weren’t very good!! Haha!

    Hello!! These look great and so easy to make :) Are the coconut flakes sweetened or not? In the picture, they do not look sweetened, but wanted to make sure before I made them.

    1. I usually buy sweetened coconut flakes, but I think this would be good with either!

      1. Thanks Aimee! I will be making these this week and I will let you know what my daughter thinks :)

    2. I would use the unsweetened for the less calorie, less sugar part. If you’re nor worried about that go crazy and use the sweetened. Yum, Yum!

  3. Anyone know about how many bites this recipe makes?

    1. Chrissy I don’t remember the exact amount and it will depend how big you make the bites, but I would guess about 15-18 at the size I made them!

  4. i too added flax, as well as cinnamon and swapped in craisins for raisins! They turned out great, i did need a lil extra peanut butter to help them not be too dry with the flax added

  5. Does it matter if it regular or quick oats?

    1. I think either will work just fine!

    Thanks for the recipe! I just made it and it is DELICIOUS. I took some artistic license (I was trying to clean out the pantry and use up things before they go bad) and used flavored instant oatmeal packets, crushed nuts, and dried fruit. And I used almond butter instead of peanut butter, and agave nectar instead of honey.
