Why yes, I am a Granola Mama

This chewy granola recipe is so yummy!  And my family loves it.  And it is healthy!  The recipe makes about 30 granola bites and I bag them up in snack bags so we can grab them on the go.  Fill them with whatever goodness you want.  Here is how I make these tasty morsels:

 Chop 1/4 cup oats, 2tbsp flax, and 2 tbsp nuts of your choice in chopper or food processor.  Set aside

In a large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats, 2/3 cup dried fruit, 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds or nuts, 2 tbsp raw sunflower seeds, 2tbsp coconut flakes, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 cup nutbutter of your choice, 1/4 cup honey or agave nectar, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.  Using moist fingers, press into 1″ balls.  Roll in the nut-oat crumbs and refrigerate overnight.
