Granola bites are one of my family's favorite real-food snacks. I like that they are easy to make, use up the last spoonful of granola when I'm making a new batch (for some reason I never want to put the new granola in with the old - is that just me?), and make a perfect afternoon snack with my regular cup of tea.
The rest of my family just likes how they taste - and that they're easy to grab-and-go. For years I've made a version of this recipe using peanut butter or sometimes almond butter.
Cashew, Cranberry, and White Chocolate Granola Bites
When I received a jar of cashew butter from Woodstock for my breakfast recipes during Hot Breakfast Month, I fell in love with this nut butter. It's just the perfect mildness to blend with so many flavors without overtaking them.
I just knew it would make a great granola bite, so I paired my leftover granola with cranberries (these are sweetened with apple juice!) and white chocolate chips (I like Trader Joe's brand), added just a touch of Maple Valley pure maple syrup, and coated the bites with finely chopped cashews.
The result? Definitely a winner - a new favorite version of our go-to granola bite snack!
I'll still make the peanut butter-chocolate chip version when I don't have cashew butter, but I just recently found some more on sale so I'm happy that these will be making another appearance soon (because you can guess they didn't last for long…).
