Healthy Apple Pie Granola Bar Bites
 
These healthy snacks taste just like the iconic dessert! They’ll keep for at least 6 days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • 1 ½ cups (45g) crisp brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup (100g) old-fashioned oats (measured like this and gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil or unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup (126g) unsweetened applesauce, room temperature
  • ¼ cup (60g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (60g) finely diced apple
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F, and lightly coat an 8”-square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the rice cereal, oats, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, stir together the coconut oil and applesauce. Add in the Greek yogurt, honey, and salt, mixing until thoroughly combined. Stir in the cereal mixture. Gently fold in the diced apple.
  3. Gently press the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake at 300°F for 14-17 minutes or until light golden and the center feels firm to the touch. Cool completely to room temperature in the pan before slicing into squares.
Notes: Regular crisp rice cereal may be substituted for the brown rice cereal.

Pure maple syrup or agave may be substituted for the honey.

When cutting the apple, make sure the pieces are no larger than the size of miniature chocolate chips. Bigger pieces will cause the granola bar bites to fall apart.
