Nutty Monkey Granola Bites


It’s no breaking news that this girl LOVES her granola. But some mornings you just don’t have time for a bowl of granola and milk, or even have the ability to grab a container of yogurt and top it with granola. Furthermore, granola is expensive! $$ 🙁 And this girl is a college student. Nuf said.

So what’s a health-consious, budget-conscious, time-conscious gal to do?

Make her own granola bites! That’s what!

I used walnut butter from Artisana foods! So good – makes it taste very rich and indulgent 🙂 but it isn’t! Walnut butter is so high in healthy fats and even has some fiber, protein and iron! You can use any nut butter, but I highly recommend trying to find and use walnut butter.

These bites are super easy to make, quick, and use very common (and CHEAP) ingredients. Especially if you take a couple extra bananas at the dining hall when you go for your 2 free weekly meals. Shh… don’t tell!
