Monster Cookie Granola Bites

Monster Cookie Granola Bites Recipe l

We recently discovered a new favorite variation to our favorite granola bites. I’m not sure that I can really say that these monster cookie granola bites have a “recipe.”

They are so easy to make and very forgiving on exact proportions and measurements. I guess that’s why we make so many of them around here!

Granola bites are so convenient both in how easy they are to make and in how easy they are to take on-the-go. If you have ten minutes to spare, you can easily whip out a batch of these monster cookie granola bites.

This recipe also easily doubles if you want to make enough for the week at one time.

Honey is the main sweetener in these bites, but I added a bit of brown sugar to give them more of the monster cookie flavor. Feel free to leave it out if you want to stick with just honey.

The granola bites will be sweet enough without it. Of course, you can’t have a monster cookie without chocolate chips, M&M’s, and peanut butter, so those three ingredients are the main flavors.

Throw in some crisp rice cereal for a little crunch, and before you know it, you’ll have whipped up your own batch of monster cookie granola bites!
