    • I wanted to make a "healthy" treat for my kids this last week- and this is what I came up with.  My husband was eating Girl Scout cookies...YOU KNOW, the chocolate coconut one's that are to die for!  So I wanted to make something that was chocolate and coconut and had some nutritional value.

      Do these taste like the sinful girl scout cookies- NO.  But they are super yummy and my kids love them!  Especially when eaten out of the freezer.



      Granola Bites


      Ingredients

      1 cup rolled oats

      1/2 cup Graham Crackers (broken into small pieces)

      2 TBS ground Flax Seed

      1/2 cup Coconut Flakes

      1/2 cup - 3/4 cup Chocolate Chips (vegan preferably)

      4 TBS Peanut Butter

      4 TBS Almond Butter

      1 TBS Coconut Oil

      4 TBS Honey (or you can use Agave Nectar)

      1 teaspoon Vanilla

       

      Directions

      Combine all the ingredients in a food processor*  Pulse until all mixed together and forms a sticky dough like texture.  Rolls into balls in your hand and place on cookie sheet in your freezer.  I added extra coconut to the tops of some of them- because I love coconut...but this is optional.

      *If your nut butters are cold and stiff, place them in a glass bowl along with the coconut oil and honey and microwave for 30 seconds...so it's creamy.  This will help it all mix together nicely.
