Guys, I have eaten SO MUCH granola lately… well, technically, Renola. I seriously can’t stop eating the stuff!! It’s so frickin’ good and so easy to eat while standing in the kitchen in the middle of the night while holding an infant. Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the recipes I’ve made using it because they are quite tasty, and I thought you guys might like them too!
Grain-Free Almond Butter Granola Balls
These Grain-Free Almond Butter Granola Balls combine so many of my favorite flavors together: almond butter, honey, coconut, and chocolate (from the Renola). I like eating one or two of these right before a workout when I need a little something in my stomach. They also make an awesome dessert, especially if you make them with the Cocoa Coconut flavor!
- 1.5 cups Renola granola
- 3/4 cup creamy almond butter
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut
Directions: Combine ingredients, except shredded coconut, in a mixing bowl. Refrigerator for 2+ hours. Remove mixture from fridge, roll batter into 1-inch balls, and then coat in shredded coconut and place on wax paper. Chill balls in fridge for another couple of hours. Eat and enjoy!

Coffee Cinnamon Nut Smoothie
I’m all about satisfying smoothies and adding granola was a great way to pump-up the filling factor. This one combines the flavors of banana, coffee, cinnamon, and honey for a subtly sweet, yet dessert-like smoothie. Blend one up for a delicious, nutritious, and satisfying snack or dessert!
- 1/4 cup cinnamon nut Renola granola
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 ounce espresso or strong coffee
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Directions: Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
