Having teenage boys is an entirely different world compared to how things were when they were younger. It’s got it’s ups and downs with the ever-changing hormones and their appetites are unreal! They walk into the house after school every afternoon starving, like they haven’t eaten all day. So as a mom, I need to be prepared with plenty of things for them to snack on and one of their favorites are these Chocolate & Berry Granola Bites, which I’ve partnered with Stoneridge Orchards to share with you today.
What I really love about Stoneridge Orchards Berry Mix is that their dried fruit is all natural, Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Kosher and it doesn’t contain any preservatives. It’s wholesome goodness with handpicked and harvested dried cranberries, blueberries, and strawberries that I can feel good about feeding to my family. Each 5oz bag of Stoneridge Orchards Berry Mix is just $3.99 at Meijer too so it’s a snack that won’t break the bank.
We really love Stoneridge Orchards Berry Mix on their own, but they’re also a great addition to salads, breakfast and baked goods too. Stoneridge Orchards Berry Mix is also the staple ingredient in these tasty Chocolate & Berry Granola Bites, which I’m sharing the recipe for today!
