Granola Bars-Home Baked Goodness

These granola bars turn out perfect! They are a great as a snack and very easy to make. Here’s a basic recipe that you can add other ingredients like sunflower seeds (omit the salt in recipe), dried fruit, almonds, or peanut butter. These days, I’m constantly making granola bars. It’s easy to mix up, and it disappears in the blink of an eye. My kids love it. And, no one has noticed that there are no boxed cereals or sugary snacks in the pantry. That’s a win in my book.Start your day off right with these simple granola bars!
