This is one of my daughter’s favorite snacks. And it’s so easy to make – I can customize it exactly how she likes it. I use this very flexible recipe from Baking Bites.
My girl likes lots of fruits and nuts, and she likes very clumpy granola rather than little pieces. To accomplish that, I add a little extra honey/maple syrup and applesauce. It you short those ingredients, you should get a drier end result.
Today, I used almonds, and a package of dried mixed fruit. I used honey and golden syrup, because we didn’t have any maple syrup. Sometimes I use dried cranberries, but I didn’t have any today. I added chia seeds and protein powder, along with some PB2 powder.
I usually throw the dried fruit in at the beginning instead of at the end, so it’s not separate from the rest. I’ve never had any problems doing it that way. Also, I am lazy.
