I made these granola bites about 2 months ago. Everyday since then, I’ve been eating one of these to satisfy my sweet tooth and my 4 pm-hunger.

You know, it is that time of the day when you feel like you’ve just got to reach out for a burger or order a plate of fries…. I’ve successfully resisted doing that for the past couple months… all thanks to these hunger-squashing super power nuggets! It did take a while for me to get used to this change in the menu. A granola bite is after all NOT a slice of pizza. For picky eaters, this may not be love at first sight. But stay with it, one bite at a time. It’ll grow on you.

As an unexpected yet welcome side effect of this ritual, I now see that my skin and hair have really started to improve! The omega-3 rich flax seeds and protein rich everything else have definitely contributed in a big way to my health! And now you can do this for yourself too! 🙂

Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it is really tasty too, does it? 😉 {like I mentioned, it may take a while for some people to get used to the taste. But 99% of the time, the taste just grows on you!}
