2 cups quick oats
1 cup Rice Krispy cereal
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup ground flaxseed
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2-2/3 cup honey or agave nectar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (optional but really yummy!)
Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl, mixing gently so the crispy rice cereal doesn't get crushed. Mix until well-combined.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon drop rounded portions onto a parchment or wax paper lined cooking sheet. You can round the balls between your hands.
Refrigerate or freeze on the cookie sheet for 1-2 hours. At this point you can serve them or put the chilled granola bites in a large tupperware-type container or ziploc bags. They will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week or for a few months in the freezer.
