I am so glad I made these Gluten Free Chewy Granola Bites. Why?
Because they ended up tasting like Gluten Free Double Deckers, don’t you just love it when that happens, you’re making one thing and you discover it’s so much better than you imagined! Blowing my own trumpet a bit there I know, sickening really but I love Double Deckers and Beth’s never tried one so this was more of a personal triumph than anything.

What granola should I use for this recipe?
At the time of developing this recipe, I used the NEW Nutty Granola from Delicious Alchemy, I was lucky enough to be sent a bag from team (they nicknamed me Glutey, which I adore!)
I had the idea for the chewy bites as soon as the granola arrived so was thrilled to see that our local Sainsbury’s now stock Delicious Alchemy so I was able to buy a packet to enjoy for breakfast with Bethany, and very delicious it is too!
That said, these Chewy Gluten Free Granola Bites can be made using all manner of gluten free granola. The market certainly has a few more to choose from (this recipe was originally developed in 2016!).
Can you get nut free granola?
Yes there are the odd nut free granola out there, I can thoroughly recommend one if you’re in the UK – Cheeky Nibble do an amazing free from granola that is now gluten, dairy, egg and nut free

how to make chewy granola bites?
First off you need to melt the marshmallows with the butter, I use the microwave for this recipe to make things simpler.
Next add the granola to the melted mallow.
Scoop bitesize portion into a mini tart tray and press down with the back of a spoon.
TOP TIP: I dip my spoon into a cup of water each time to prevent everything sticking.
Finally add some melted chocolate and decorate with a bit more granola before popping into the fridge to set.

- 150 g milk chocolate
- 100 g marshmallows
- 150 g granola

- In a bowl melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a pan of simmering boiled water.
- Using a well greased/sprayed mini muffin/petit fours tin spoon teaspoons of the granola mixture into each mould. I have a cup of water handy to dip the spoons into to lessen the stickiness!

- Pop into the fridge for an hour to set.
- When set use a rounded knife to gently tease the bites out of their moulds.
