Homemade Chewy Granola Bars Recipe


| 12/23/2013 12:19:00 PM


When you have children there is a never-ending call for snacks. Their growing bodies require frequent munching, car rides go more smoothly with food in tow, you want to send a birthday treat to school, and the list goes on.

Busy parents often rely on the grocery store to supply options for easy snacks for their children. While we have come a long way in what the store shelves offer, many snacks can be made quickly at home. Making your own snacks cuts down on the salt, sugar and unhealthy fats that are found in most packaged goods. Granola bars are a perfect example. Usually loaded with refined sugar and fat, the homemade version uses healthy fats from nut butter and sweetness from honey. Best of all, they can be tailored to fit what your family enjoys and there is no baking required!
