Ditch The Croutons. Go With Off Road Granola

Sarah Mock

Off Road Granola instead of croutons
Off Road Instead Of Croutons

Summer is in full bloom! In my house that means lots and lots of salads. I love harvesting fresh produce from the garden and tossing the ingredients together for a fresh, crisp salad on a hot day. I do my best to eat a rainbow of colors every day and this salad is a great way to hit most every color.

Off Road Granola instead of Croutons.

This super simple salad is a mix of butter lettuce, baby romaine and red leaf lettuce, 3 sliced strawberries and a large handful of blueberries. We are fortunate that we have pick your own blueberries near our house. Check our Pick Your Own.org to see if there is a field near you!

Off Road Granola Instead of Croutons.

But to give this summer fresh salad some crunch I skipped the croutons and sprinkled on a large handful of Off Road Edition granola. The mixed nuts in the granola add a bit of protein to this salad. The dried dates and dried cranberries add a different texture as well as concentrated sweetness to each bite. This entire meal is vegan. Not a vegan myself, but I am enjoying all the benefits with this meal!

Give your salad a light drizzle with your favorite dressing and you have a fabulous, fresh seasonal salad to keep you going for the rest of the day!

Directions:

Warm the nut butter and honey in the microwave for 35 seconds or until it is a pourable consistency. 

Stir to combine.

No Bake Granola Bites

Add the nut butter/honey mixture to the box mix and stir to combine completely.

You may have to use clean hands to massage the ingredients together. It is important that every bit of the oats are covered in nut butter/honey.

Here is why it is important for everything to be thoroughly coated....You are going to be pressing the mixture into silicone molds.

Press and press and press and press.  The tighter you can compact the granola bites the better they are going to stay together once they are un-molded.

This recipe made 2 dozen bites with a couple large extras in muffin molds.

Pop into the refrigerator to set up and cool completely. I had them in there for a few hours but they might have been ready before then. I got distracted and forgot to check after an hour.

Pop the no bake granola bites out of the molds!

Store in the refrigerator for best results.
