Expert Tips

Be sure to use medjool dates for this recipe. Medjool dates are known as the “soft” date. They are the largest and prized for their sweet taste and juicy, soft flesh. Medjool dates can be found in grocery stores specializing in organic foods.

These granola bites can be stored in the freezer in a tightly covered container for up to 1 month. Thaw before eating.
