Check these out as a little healthier option for a change. And if you are like me, it's nice to have some favorite recipes using sun butter too.
No need to limit yourself to just one flavor though, this recipe is delicious with any nut butter. The original recipe calls for almond butter, Chocolate Almond Granola Bites from the blog, My Baking Addiction. Click on the link to try the original version.
I changed it up a bit to fit my personal needs.
My family loves them and my husband said, "leave them out...I'm going to eat the whole pan!'
In fact, you may want to just double the batch and save some time : )
Sun Butter No Bake Granola Clusters Makes 15-18 depending on size
1/3 cup agave syrup
1/3 cup sun butter (sunflower butter) or any nut butter of your choice.
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of your favorite granola, I used a low-fat, gluten free granola.
1 cup old-fashioned oats, I used gluten free.
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, I used an allergy friendly chip.
Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
Combine agave, sun butter, and coconut oil in a small sauce pan. Over low heat stir constantly until mixture is smooth and warm. Remove from heat and add vanilla, stir. Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl combine all the rest of the ingredients except chocolate chips. Mix well.
Pour cooled syrup mixture over oat mixture and stir until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips. It's ok if they melt a little.
Spoon out mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, or use a cookie scoop for a more uniform shape.
Refrigerate or freeze until set. Store in refrigerator or freezer as well.
