These No Bake Granola Bites are perfect for breakfast, a snack, or a sweet treat on the go! //

It is no secret that my guys love camping. This summer, they have two week-long trips planned to be one with nature while I’ll be here at home being one with electricity. Don’t get me wrong, I think camping is awesome, wondrous, adventuresome, and any other adjective that you can throw in there that means good things. But, for me, personally, my form of camping is in the motorhome. I’ll admit it. I’m a wimp and I’m perfectly okay with that. Thankfully, Bart and Sam are perfectly okay with my wimpy nature, too.

But, to show some semblance of remorse at not packing up a tent and heading out there with them, I try to send them off with homemade goodies when they leave. Because, well, it is the least that I can do. Over the years, I’ve gotten good at making treats that I know will keep well while still being absolutely delicious. That’s where these no bake granola bites come into play. Technically, they could make them themselves while they are out, but that would stop all the fun of me sending them with them.

These little granola bites are packed with good stuff, too. Oats, nuts, chocolate, nut butter, honey – you know, the essentials. Ha. In just a little bit, I can whip up a batch of these babies, pack them up and send them on their way. But, thankfully, these little granola bites aren’t just for campers! I like to keep a little stash of them around for a quick grab and go treat or even for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Hey, don’t judge!

Here’s how I make my no bake granola bites. Make ’em soon! Tent camping not required, but definitely optional! 🙂

    Hi ! I have made these little bites, but since I am a chocolate lover I melted semi-sweet and rolled them in the chocolate and put on parchment paper and put them in the frig for 20 minutes. Delish!!

    So I made these last night – and although they are tasty, they were kind of goopy. I could not form them into balls so I just scooped out some from a spoon and laid it on the parchment paper. Followed the directions to a T – not sure why it turned out that way- had to put them in the freezer too – Iused Almond Nut butter – is there another Nut Butter that might work better? Thanx!
