As usual I have been searching for quick, easy, and healthy options for feeding my children. Breakfast is a particularly hard time. It doesn’t help that Bryce eats nothing. Well at least nothing that’s good for him. He will eat donuts and chicken mini’s until the cows come home 😉 and really who can blame him. But eggs – nope, oatmeal – never.
Luckily both boys LOVE granola bars. This is a good thing, except they usually have lots of sugar and other “stuff” in them and/or they cost a fortune. I found this great no bake granola bar recipe on pinterest. You can check out some of my other healthy finds on the board below.
I gave it a try this morning and they are so easy and delicious!!
Definitely read the tips on her post and use a low sugar granola. You want to keep the brown sugar where it is so that it gets all gooey and chewy, but this makes it super sweet if you use a sweet granola. I used the Vanilla Almond Granola by Back to Nature and it was very sweet. Good, but very sweet. Next time I am going to use their Classic Granola.
I also recently made some Applesauce granola using her recipe and it was very easy. I haven’t made the granola bars with it yet but I will let you know how it goes. If you or your kids like granola bars you should definitely give this a try. You wouldn’t believe how easy and fast it is!!
