Healthy Granola Bites


These healthy granola bites are great for lunch box snacks, after school treats, or rushed mornings out the door. They are vegan, gluten free, nut free, kid friendly and freezer friendly too! The best part about this recipe is that it contains only the sugar from whole foods such as dates, bananas and blueberries which makes them just sweet enough to pass as a treat.
