  • I’ve been on the look out for a homemade granola bars recipe, but haven’t been able to find one I like. With a little experimenting in the kitchen I made my own recipe. Were they as good as those chocolate dipped quaker granola bars? Not quite {i love those}… but they were pretty tasty if I do say so myself. Plus they are 100% healthy! You can feel happy and confident feeding these to your kiddos this summer at snack time. You could even substitute the fruit for mini chocolate chips and marshmallows for a little treat. You better believe I will be trying that next!

    As you can… these ingredients are super healthy. My kids love the Plum packs, so we used those and they worked great.
