Hi! My name is Jennifer and I love snacks.
Who’s with me?
Personally, I’m a grazer.
While, yes, I DO sit down and eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I tend to eat smaller meals and nibble on random snacks throughout the day.
My schedule tends to go like this:
- Coffee + little sweet snack with my coffee (I know I’m not alone there)
- Breakfast – maybe a few hard boiled eggs with some toast
- Lunch – I’ve been really into veggie burgers lately
- Dinner – blog leftovers 9 times outta 10
- After dinner snack #1
- After dinner snack #2 (we eat literally at 5 o’clock, so I need another snack or I won’t sleep 😉 )
As you can see.
Snacks are my jam.
On the go snacks – aka snacks that I can make ahead of time that I can then grab and go when I please – are even more my jam!
As you can probably guess, these honey walnut granola bar bites totally fit the bill.
What ingredients are in granola bar bites?
- Old fashioned oats – aka – the base of most granola bar recipes
- California Walnuts – which add good fats, protein, and nutty deliciousness!
- PSST – did you know 1 oz of walnuts has 2.5g monounsaturated fat, 13g polyunsaturated fat – including 2.5g omega-3 ALA, and 4g of protein?!
- Salt – for flavor
- Coconut oil – the binder
- Honey – for sweetness and stickiness to keep these together
- Vanilla – for flavor
- Dark chocolate and maldon sea salt – optional, but highly recommended for that ultra yummy sweet/salty combo
How do you make homemade honey walnut granola bar bites?
- Throw everything (minus optional chocolate and sea salt) into your food processor and process until the mixture forms into a ball
- Use a cookie scoop to evenly scoop into 20 even bites – the mixture will be very sticky
- Place onto a silicone mat lined baking sheet and place in the fridge, so the bites can firm up
- Remove from fridge and use your hands to roll into smooth bites
- Drizzle with optional chocolate and sprinkle of sea salt. I even topped some of them with an extra California Walnut for added crunch – YUM!
- Store in tupperware in the fridge
- Grab and GO!
Sweet, salty perfectly pop-able, you better believe I’ll be stocking my fridge with my new favorite grab and go snack: honey walnut granola bar bites!
