Granola Superfood Collagen Bites

(Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free | Paleo-Friendly) I’ve heard a lot about collagen, but hadn’t properly tried it for myself until about a month ago. I love food and tend to not always be very well connected with my body –AKA I eat when I’m not actually hungry. So, I started using collagen, in part, to see if it would help me be more in tune with my body’s needs. I use one scoop a day in my oats, coffee or whatever and really do find that it helps me stay better connected with my hunger! Win! These little bites are awesome pick-me-ups for any afternoon energy slumps (that I get everyday). They’re especially good with a cup of coffee…
