Kick your packaged breakfast-on-the-go up a culinary level and bake a handmade batch of granola “bar” bites. Choose your favorite granola cereal without raisins that has seven or fewer grams of added sugars to keep this recipe healthful.



  • 1 second spray Organic Olive Oil
  • 4 oz Dried Dates, Pitted
  • 2 tsp Virgin & Unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 2 cups Granola Cereal


1 Preheat the oven to 300°F.
2 Spritz the 12 cups of a mini-stick-resistant muffin tray with cooking spray.
3 Add the dates and coconut oil to a food processor; cover and blend on high speed until pureed. (Note: The fresher/moister the dried dates, the better.)
4 Add the granola and pulse about 6 or 7 times, until crumbly and evenly combined, not pureed.
5 Evenly transfer granola mixture into the cups of the mini-muffin tray. Extra-firmly press to compact using a flexible silicone spatula. Bake until firm, about 15 minutes.
6 Let tray cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Then remove granola bites, using a toothpick to loosen edges from the tray. Place bites directly on cooling rack to finish cooling and slightly crisping. Enjoy on the go.
