Granola Bites

Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish Arbor Day, that occurred this week, reminded me that we traditionally eat fruits and nuts from trees in Israel. Here is a quick and easy snack that incorporates some of those delicious foods. You can also break it up into small bits and serve as “Granola Crumbles” or package them as a yummy treat in your “Mishloah Manot” gifts for the upcoming holiday of Purim. Feel free to be creative. Enjoy!
