Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Nature Valley™ through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Nature Valley™ Protein Granola, all opinions are my own.

My kids are back to school and I have a little less input on what they’re eating during the day so whenever I find an opportunity to slip in a healthy snack or breakfast I jump at the chance.

Crunchy clusters of whole grain oats, dark chocolate pieces and a touch of peanut butter are the perfect start to great tasting and nutritious breakfasts and snacks. I knew the word protein was going to make this a hard sell to my kids. They both make a scrunched up face whenever they hear the word protein. They immediately think protein powder and not dark chocolate and peanut butter.

One bite of my Banana Protein Granola Bites and they were both hooked on the Nature Valley™ Protein Granola. Protein and all!

Delicious and easy to make. Slice a banana, add a dab of peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter) for the “glue” and top with Nature Valley™ Protein Granola.

You probably already know that adding protein to your diet throughout the day has many benefits. 1/2 cup Nature Valley™ Protein Granola provides 10 grams of protein and 22-26 grams of whole grain, at least 48 grams of whole grain recommended daily.

Nature Valley™ Protein Granola is a healthy option that my kids love. That’s a win-win!

  1. I didn’t even know there was such a thing! I’m excited to try it. I am always looking for healthy snacks to take to the office. Protein makes it all the better!

  2. I just love those banana Protein bites! What a great idea. My favorite way to eat granola is to load it up with lots of fresh fruit and milk!

  3. Anything with bananas and granola and I’m in! I like to make “ice cream” from frozen bananas and top it with granola for a yummy crunch!

  4. Ooh I will be looking for that granola the next time I go shopping!

  5. I love granola in my yogurt. This one looks good. I like the Nature Valley bars but I have never tried the loose granola. Thanks for linking up with us today as part of Wonder Mom Wednesday!

  6. Those banana snacks look awesome – I know that Hunter would love them – maybe I will make him some for his CC meet Saturday!!!

  7. I haven’t seen their granola here yet. Must go look!!

  8. Pardon me while I smack my forehead… How on earth have I never thought to give my picky kid bananas with peanut butter? I eat it all the time. Adding granola sounds delish.

  9. I love me some granola 🙂 My favorite way is to make my own trail mix with some granola, dried cranberries, almonds and dark chocolate chips for a touch of sweetness

  10. Great job…I just had a filling breakfast, yet now you have made me hungry! 🙂

  11. oh you are so creative! i must make these, back to school or not haha

  12. Yum! I love granola when I eat it as cereal. I can’t eat as much because it’s pretty calorie dense, but it’s so delicious when it combines with milk! 🙂

  13. Wow, what an easy recipe and so good for you! I have a tendency to eat it right out of the bag! 🙂 but I also love to put it on top of my yogurt!
