Check out this recipe for Granola Energy Bites from the book:
Makes 48: Serving size = 2 pieces
Just because time is short doesn’t mean you have to throw good nutrition out the window. These bite-size snacks will satiate hunger on the run. One or two of them will reboot your energy and help you think straight so you can make it through to your next good meal. Don’t eat too much of a good thing if you are watching calories. Food is medicine, after all, and it’s important to get the right dose.
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
1⁄3 cup golden raisins
1⁄3 cup dried cranberries
½ cup walnuts, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup almond milk
½ cup applesauce
½ cup olive oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a 13" × 9" baking dish, overlay a large piece of parchment paper, overlapping all the sides. Coat the paper with coconut oil.
- In a large bowl, combine the oats, almond flour, chia seeds, raisins, cranberries, walnuts, and cinnamon.
- In another large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, applesauce, oil, eggs, vanilla, and orange peel.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine.
- Spread the granola mixture onto the parchment paper and push down, making sure the mixture is even and compact. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until browned and dry.
- Allow to cool completely in the baking dish. Once cool, remove the granola bites by lifting out the parchment paper. Cut into 48 pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
