Homemade Granola Bites

Granola is an all time favorite to eat during breakfast or as a healthy snack between foods. The combination of dry fruit, nuts and honey or any kind of syrup are a good way to gain energy during the day. But did you know that most of the granola we buy in supermarkets is not as healthy as you though?

Granola found in supermarkets are usually high in sugar and a small portion can have a lot of calories. Sometimes there are brands that use more seeds and nuts in their recipes and be more benefitial for your health but the mayority uses aditives to make it taste better.

Our recipe consists in almonds, pecans, oatmeal, coconut and honey. Most of the fat in nuts is monosaturated fat, which is the best source of fat you can get, and also omegas. They are a good source of fiber and protein, they also help to improve the metabolism.
