Mindfully Miranda’s Pumpkin Flax Granola Bites

  • 1 cup of Organic Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • 2/3 cups of Nature’s Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Granola
  • 1/2 cup of Natural 100% Peanut, Almond, or Cashew Butter
  • 1/2 cup of Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1/4 cup of Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

** Start by either microwaving or using the stove to warm your peanut butter, vanilla and maple syrup, as this will create a runnier consistency needed to make the balls stick.

*** In a large bowl, add your warmed nut butter and syrup to the rest of the ingredients. Stir well. Roll into balls and store in fridge.

Why do I love these ingredients?

Chia and Flax Seeds: Rich source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, plant-based protein, magnesium, and healthy Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

Granola: Made with organic whole grains, nuts and seeds, it is a delicious, crunchy addition to these bliss balls.

Nut Butter: Healthy plant-based fat, good source of protein.

Oats: Good source of healthy carbohydrates which helps to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol as the ample fiber slows down it’s metabolizing process. Also delivers a significant amount of protein.

Cinnamon: Known for it’s positive effects on lowering blood sugar and cholestrol levels,  as well as increasing heart health and immune function.
