Laurie's Tip

My kids love to snack on granola bars, however I sometimes have a hard time giving them the packaged variety.  Seeing them eat these makes me much happier. I know exactly what ingredients are in them (and I can pronounce them) and how much…if I want to add a handful of chocolate chips for variety – I can and feel much better that I am adding them to a homemade snack.

Hope you enjoy!
