Cranberry Chia Granola Bites

Cranberry Chia Granola Bites

This is the second variety in the great granola ball taste test.  Should I have a go to recipe for granola balls, this would be it.  Although, I would dial down the sweetness if possible.

Adapted from Babble


1 3/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup agave nectar
1 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp  cinnamon
1/2 cup room temperature creamy nut butter


1. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl, add wet ingredients and mix until thoroughly incorporated.

2. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.

3. Working with wet hands, roll into bite sized balls.

4. Store in refrigerator.

Note: This recipe is not scientific. Anything can be modified and or substituted to your preferences. Also, depending on temperature, humidity, etc. you may have to add more dry or wet ingredients to get the balls to come together. They don’t have to be perfect to be yummy!
